Event Details:

Please bring your tennis shoes, water, and a flashlight for this night hike! We will be hiking the sweet shrub trail which is a short and easy (< .25 mile) trail. If you are not camping with us, you will not be permitted to stay in the park after the event. The park typically closes at 7:00 PM but this event allows special, after dark entry. If you are not camping at Chewacla, please arrive at the park entrance 15 minutes prior to the event time (7:45 PM) and show us your event ticket. We will allow your entrance into the park. Everyone, campers and non-campers, will meet at the second parking loop on the right in the park. At 8:00 PM we will start making our way to the pavillion near the second parking loop where the trailhead is. We will hike while also making several stops to observe the night sky and learn about the nocturnal animals we see and hear.
