Join the Ranger for an easy 3 mile night hike up the Waterfall Trail.

Join Ranger Steve for an after-hours trail walk to look for and learn about the nocturnal critters of the Park! Wildlife seen on past walks have included bats, ringtails, foxes, skunks, javelinas, deer, owls, scorpions, insects, and other cool creepy crawlies!  Please bring your own flashlights and blacklights if you have them. Please carry your own water and bring extra jackets or sweaters for warmth (it regularly gets 5-10 degrees colder at night in the mountains than surrounding Valley cities. Trails are rated as easy, but there is a 150 foot elevation gain. The first section is paved and barrier-free. There are some uneven or sandy surfaces. We will hike about 3 miles.  

To register, please call the Nature Center at 602-506-2930 ext. 5. If you find you cannot attend a program after you have registered, please call the Nature Center ASAP so we may contact those on the waiting list. This program is all ages, but might not be suitable for toddlers or young children due to their perception of the darkness and hiking length.
