Full Moon Hike

March 7 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Ever feel like it’s time to change up your weekly evening routine for something a bit more… spectacular? Take a night off from Netflix and exchange your couch for our verdant hills and wide open sky during March’s full moon hike. On this 3-and-a-half mile round-trip hike we will ascend to a breathtaking vista point and welcome March’s glowing “worm moon” as it emerges into the night sky. The name “worm moon” is thought to have originated from Dakota Native Amercans, who associate this seasonal moon with the appearance of “worms” (actually beetle larvae) that surfaced from within tree bark as landscapes thawed from the long winter. 

Dress for the crisp, cool winter night, wear sturdy hiking shoes (expect the possibility of muddy trails), and pack flashlights loaded with fresh batteries. Strong winds or rain will cancel.  


Date: Tuesday, March 7 

Time:  5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Location: Meeting location details emailed upon reservation. 

Difficulty: Moderate, 3.5 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 5:30 p.m. sharp, so don’t be late or you’ll miss the fun!
