Night Hike

Night Hike

Interested in experiencing nature in the dark? Join us for a 1-mile hike along the ridgeline of Mount Jefferson. Students from Appalachian State University will lead the hike and discuss Bioluminescence along the trail and explore the night sky at Luther Rock. Please bring a small headlamp, sturdy shoes, and dress appropriately for the weather. Children under age seven must be closely supervised. Hiking at night can be physically challenging and parts of the trail are strenuous. 922
