Howl at the Moon Hike

Discover the magic of hiking at night when the full moon lights the way and your canine companion is right by your side.

This "howling good time" will be held once a month, on the full moon, and will travel to different parks from May to December.

You do not have to have a dog to enjoy the night walks. All well-behaved dogs must be on leash from start to finish and owners are responsible for cleaning up any messes left behind.

So join us monthly to discover the sights and sounds that reveal themselves when the sun goes down and the full moon arrives.
