Explore under a new moon when the stars are at their brightest, it's a wonderful opportunity to experience nature in stillness and in peace. There is something magical about hiking at night, using the stars as a light source. Without the heavy traffic we often find on our trails during the day, we get to experience nature in stillness and in peace. Our senses become heightened, our eyes are forced to adjust to the lower light, and our ears search out sounds in the silence.
As we walk through the night and are met with unfamiliar noises, our imaginations go a little wild, often drawing out our fears, but if we allow ourselves to be present in those moment and witness the marvel of the nocturnal world we often miss at night, we truly see that in darkness there is also beauty.
We invite you to join our guide, walk beneath the stars, explore our trails after dark and fall in love with nature all over again
