New Moon Hike in Peters Canyon

Interpretive
New Moon Hike in Peters Canyon

Half the park is after dark! Come explore the nocturnal sights and sounds as we hit the trails on this leisure night hike. It’s chilly after sunset so wear warm layers, sturdy footwear, water, and bring red tinted flashlight if possible. This will help to keep our night vision from being impacted by any bright light. There will be no moon in the night sky, so enjoy the stargazing show!

This hike is not recommended for very small children or strollers. No pets please. Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian during the program.

For questions, please contact Resource Specialist, Kelley Brugmann at 714-973-6625 or Kelley.Brugmann@ocparks.com
