CANCELLED: Full Moon Hike

November 8 @ 4:15 pm - 7:00 pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO RAIN. CHECK OUR CALENDAR FOR UPCOMING EVENTS. Your heart will fill with wonder as we gaze into the sky during November’s full moon hike. On this moderate, 4.5-mile round-trip hike, we will ascend to one of the best vista points in the park to view the cream-colored moon as it rises over the sparkling bay. This month’s moon is named “Beaver Moon”. Though there are no beavers in the bay area, around this time of year beavers in other parts of the United States retire to their dens, with food stores ready for the long winter ahead.

As an exciting addition, eager sky-gazers *on their own time* have the option to view a total lunar eclipse that will occur the early morning before the hike on November 8, from 12:02 a.m. to 5 a.m..                                             

Date: Tuesday, November 8

Time:  4:15 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Location: Meeting location details emailed upon reservation. 

Difficulty: Moderate, 4.5 miles round trip

What to bring: Warm clothing, water, flashlight or headlamp with spare batteries. Be sure to wear appropriate shoes for hiking. 

Note: Hike begins at 4:15 p.m. sharp, so don’t be late or you’ll miss the fun!
