    If you have ever been on a hike and the sun set before you finished, you know that experiencing a trail at night can be a completely different experience from hiking during the day. Landmarks change, as can your sense of direction. Even if you’ve hiked a trail several times, it can feel completely unfamiliar. Preregistration is required for all night hikes.

    Winter Night Hike: January 28, 2017; 6 p.m. Click here to preregister

    Cost: $14 non-members / $12 Heard Museum Members* (Age 3 years through adult)

    Explore the thrilling sights, smells, and sounds of night with Heard Trail Guides. Night hikers will be encouraged to sharpen their senses to be able to spot signs of animal life and learn more about the inhabitants of the Heard.
