Full Moon Night Hike

December 22 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us on a Full Moon Night Hike in Myakka River State Park! The weather will be perfect, the full moon rising, and peace and quiet while we hike 5 miles through the wilderness.

This 5-mile loop hike will take you through several of Florida’s diverse ecosystems such as pine flat woods, prairies and hardwood hammocks. The sun will be setting, so we will be looking and listening for the marvelous sights and sounds of dusk in the woods! Birds returning home to roost, crickets and frogs croaking and chirping, mystery animals calling in the distance. This will be a hike for all the senses, not just sight, so we will walk quietly. We will take a leisurely pace but avoid stopping so that the mosquitoes remain a minor nuisance. This is a back-country trail that has some uneven terrain and narrow paths.

**Park admission is not included in the guided hike fee. The park entrance fees are as follows: $4 per car with a single occupant or $6 per car with 2 – 8 occupants. Carpooling or use of State Park Annual Passes is encouraged!**

You must sign up for this event in advance and bring the ticket that is emailed upon registration. The group will be meeting in the picnic area just to the right of the Ranger Station.
