Bring a flashlight and your sense of wonder as you explore the park after dark. This hike begins at the White Barn and heads up to the viewpoint on Vista Trail or to Bald Mountain, where we will see the moon rise over the Mayacamas and the sun set over Sonoma Valley.
The Bald Mountain route is a strenuous 6.5 miles with 1500+ of vertical and some steep sections (not recommended for under 12). It leaves the White Barn parking lot at 6pm. This particular route will have the privilege of observing the moon through telescopes set up by RFO docents.
The Vista Trail route is a moderate-to-strenuous, 4-mile hike with 700ft of elevation and begins at 7pm. Not recommended for children under 8.
Tickets are $10 general, and $5 for students, youths (12-17 year olds), Sugarloaf members and Sugarloaf volunteers. Be at the meeting location at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the hike for a prompt departure. Bring water, snacks, and extra layers for the evening. Parking fees apply.
