Park After Dark-Night Walk

DeSoto State Park-Fort Payne, Alabama

Join Park Naturalists Jamie & Brittney to get to know the park after dark! You never know what you can discover during the night; we will be using our senses to discover what can be seen, heard, or even smelled on this fun walk!

On this walk we will be on the cabin road & go to the frog pond, near DeSoto’s South entrance. All ages welcome, children must be supervised. We will walk from the DeSoto State Park Lodge-short distance, terrain will be a mix of asphalt and dirt road, closed toed shoes are preferred.

Bring a small flashlight or headlamp if you wish (red light preferred) or there will be some flashlights available first come-first served. Please no dogs, as our nighttime friends can be shy.
