Full Moon Hike to Hurricane Hill:

A 3 mile round trip hike.  Meet at the Hurricane Hill trailhead.

The trailhead is a 1.5 mile drive beyond the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center.

Please wear sturdy shoes.  A constellation tour will occur at the top of Hurricane Hill.

The full moon hikes for 2019 have been cancelled.  There is trail construction going on this summer, but look for Full Moon Hikes to return in 2020.

A special lunar observing program remembering the Apollo 11 landing 50th anniversary.  The waning gibbous moon rises at 11:18 pm, so the program will begin at 11 pm.
