Join a park ranger for a hike on the Loop Trail under the light of the moon.

Along our journey we’ll look and listen for signs of the creatures that inhabit the park at night (which now will include us!). We'll learn how they are able to survive and thrive in the park after dark. Learn how dark skies and light pollution affect these critters and some easy things we can do to help them (and ourselves)!

Meet in the campground, near the beginning of the Loop Trail.

Time: Approximately 1.5 hours.
Distance: 1.0 mile round trip.
Difficulty: easy-moderate.
Elevation gain: 125 feet.
