Full Moon Hike at Lost Dutchman
Lost Dutchman State Park
Dec. 23 Varies by Date
This beautiful program is designed to start with a famous Arizona sunset draping gracefully over the Superstition Mountains, and end under the light of the full moon.

It is a ranger-guided hike focusing on the aesthetic, while offering opportunities to stop and interpret what you see on the trail. To reduce impact, ensure safety, and provide a more intimate, personalized experience, there will be a guest limit. Register online up to the day before the event for $10 per person, no walk ups. Ages 10 and up welcome; please, no pets. Bring good shoes, water, and small flashlight. Meet in the Cholla day use ramada.
