June 9th Full Moon Night Hike

Purchase tickets here

Enjoy a glorious night hike at Myakka River State Park. Join us for a night hike in one of Florida’s largest and oldest state parks.

There is a $10.00 charge for this hike and is limited to 20 people. Admission to the park is included in the hike.

This 5-mile loop hike will take you through several of Florida’s diverse ecosystems such as pine flat woods, prairies, and hardwood hammocks. This is a back country trail that has some uneven terrain and narrow paths.

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.

Myakka River State Park is located 9 miles East of I-75 on SR 72 (exit 205), park entrance is on the left.

Minimum Age: 10 years (please use your best judgement)

Additional information will be emailed to you after the registration process is completed.
