Prepare for Moonlit Magic!
When the full moon graces the night sky, an enchanting transformation can occur. While we can assure you that no one has turned into a werewolf or Count Dracula during our full moon hikes at HTXO/BCO (so far), we are firm believers in celebrating the ethereal beauty of this celestial event with a leisurely moonlit walk.
Join us for an enchanting journey under the full moon’s radiant glow and immerse yourself in the captivating lunar landscape. It’s a night of celestial wonder that you won’t want to miss.
About the Trail:
We are hiking on an actual trail with hills! Yes, right here in Houston! This is not a paved path, which makes it interesting when you hike back at night, in the dark!
We’ll hike about 3-4 miles.
What to bring:
- Red Light Headlight / Red Light flashlight – You can get these really cheap at Walmart or Academy, so please pick one up! Using a red light will help you keep your night vision; it won’t scare off the animals as much, and you won’t get as many shadows.
- Water: Stay hydrated before and after the hike. Bring water for the hike. It’s more comfortable to have a backpack to carry it in than to carry it with your hand.
- Sturdy Shoes: These are actual dirt trails, and it’s night: no platforms, no slippers or flip flops. We will check shoes before the hike, and inappropriate shoes will need to stay back.
No Dogs: Most of our events are dog-friendly. Since this is nighttime and there are snakes, there are no dogs on this hike.
Adults only, no Kids: We are an adult social club, and our night hike is not suitable for kids.
Leave No Trace: Please throw away any bottles or trash you have. Bring a shopping bag and pick up some trash during the hike.
