Night Hike along The Great Blue Heron Loop Trail

Hiking the Great Blue Heron Loop Trail is always a beautiful journey, but with the full moon being just the night before, walking along the wetlands while watching a nearly full moon rise is something special.  Please wear closed toed shoes.  If you bring a flashlight, please place a red or blue filter over the lens so we don’t dim our night vision.  Highly suggest bringing bug spray and water.  We’ll meet at the parking lot of the Iron Ore Belt Access.
