Join us as we explore the ANP at night. We’ll hike out to the Sanctuary Trail at night under an almost full moon and enjoy the unusual sights and sounds of the forest at night. Full moon is actually on the 13th but I’m working that night… sorry;-)
I limit the RSVPs to these events to 15 with a wait list. Since this event is posted to both the Imagine & “Lets Take a Hike…” meetup groups, I spread the available openings across both meetup groups. If this meetup is already wait listed, click ***THIS LINK*** to check the other meetup because it still might have some openings.
***IMPORTANT*** Please be certain you plan on attending before you RSVP. If you RSVP and your plans change… no worries. Just be sure to update your status so someone else on the wait list can jump in if they want. Your cooperation is appreciated.
Given the time of year and time of day we’re going, it will be fairly cold. Thermal underwear, plenty of warm layers, hat and gloves highly recommended. Please bring a head lamp or flashlight preferably one with a red filter.
LENGTH: About 4 miles
ELEVATION GAIN: None
DURATION: Approximately 2.0 hours
POST HIKE MERRIMENT:-)
Afterwards, for those that care to, a visit to the
Bungalow Lakehouse (46116 Lake Center Plaza, Sterling, VA 20165)
for cocktails is planned.
