Join us on our annual event to enjoy the full moon and the Christmas lights at Chatfield Botanic Gardens.  We will meet in the parking lot for Hilldebrand.  Our hike is a 5 mile loop on good trail.  Dec. 1 is a couple of days earlier than the actual full moon that occurs on Sunday night, Dec. 3.  Dress warmly and bring headlamp.  In past years we have not needed the headlamps as the ambient light from the moon has been plenty bright to see where we are putting our feet.  The trail has few rocks and no tree roots.  There are no trees so it is an unobstructed view to the east and the trail sits on a bench so we are higher up and  can see around 30 miles distance.  We also get great views of the Christmas lights at Chatfield.  A few days before our hike, I will let you know if we are going to need traction devices on our boots depending on snow cover.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
