This weekend I was with my Girl Scout troop at camp. We were guided on the most glorious evening hike and took in some amazing sights of the mountains and trees casting shadows as the sun went down. The Blue Moon Hike at Laguna Coast Wilderness Park is a perfect evening hike for taking in some lovely views.
Hike with park staff and Laguna Canyon Foundation volunteers as the sun sets and moon rises over Laurel and Willow Canyons. This is a leisurely hike and best suited for anyone ages 12+. Observe the changes as day turns to night. Learn about night wildlife. Hear the last bird songs and use the bat detector to listen for their ultrasonic communication. The terrain on this 3.5 mile hike (600-ft. elevation gain) can be steep, rocky and uneven.
Participants should bring water, a snack, a flashlight, a sweater or jacket, and wear long pants and proper closed-toed hiking shoes.
