GO TO PARK

Night Hike

Night Hike

Join a Park Ranger on a different kind of hike than most folks are used to. Hiking at night is a whole new experience where you get to see and hear different wildlife and experience the outdoors in a new way. We will hike to the Crabtree Creek on the Company Mill trail and spend some time quiet and stationary in various spots along the trail to see if we can coax out some of our night time animal friends. Attendees should bring a good flashlight and/or headlamp with fresh batteries. Those without a flashlight will be turned away. And no cell phone flashlights will be permitted for safety reasons. 

Program Length: 1-1.5 hours
Reservations required. Please call the visitor center at 919-571-4170 to make reservations.
