Sat, Mar 31, 2018, 5:55 PM: Moonlight Hike to Estate Clairmont

General info for all hikes and walks: Hikes and walks are $5 for members, and $10 for non-members (become a member). Unless otherwise noted, the pace for hikes is moderate, lasting 3-5 hours, covering 3-5 miles, the terrain is hilly, footing is sometimes uneven, and we follow trails and possibly paved or dirt roads. Walks are easier and shorter than hikes, and usually follow paved or dirt roads, no trails. The guide may periodically stop and talk along the way. Bring sturdy, comfortable walking or hiking shoes, water, snack, bug spray, rain poncho, and camera. Shorts or long pants are OK. For day hikes, bring a hat and sun block. For night hikes, bring a small flashlight. There are usually about 20 people. We depart about 30 minutes after the posted start time. For some hikes, we will meet at the indicated location, then drive a short distance to the hike location.

Specific info for this hike: This full moon hike leads to high views of the north shore. The hike is strenuous in places, is 2.5 miles total on a mix of paved and dirt roads, and takes about 3 hours. We will discuss the natural, cultural, and historical resources of the area.  Olasee Davis, ecologist is our tour guide. Meet near the entrance to Salt River Marina at 5:55 PM. Please be on time, and bring small bills to pay.
