Join us for a Backcountry Women Full Moon night hike!
This hike is a unique night-hiking experience where we will stop periodically to gaze at the full moon (howling optional) and take in the stillness of the season.
November’s full Moon goes by the name Beaver Moon, due to this being the time of year when beavers begin to take shelter in their lodges, having laid up sufficient stores of food for the long winter ahead.
Our Full Moon Hikes require that everyone carry their own light source, whether a head lamp or flashlight (mandatory).
If you wish to carpool to this event, please see details under the carpools section below.
