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.
