WE’RE SORRY – THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT! We promise this hike will only take place once, despite it being Groundhog Day. But you will wish you could experience it again and again. Lewis Morris Park is a fantastic location for a night hike; rich with screech owl habitat, and with a mix of trails and roads to walk no matter what the conditions. We will kick things off right with hot cocoa and homemade s’mores. We want to make sure you’ll be fueled up for the hike. February 2nd is also Candlemas – an ancient Celtic festival marking triumph of light over darkness; the midpoint of the winter season. C’mon out and join us!
Conditions might be cold and muddy – please dress accordingly. The hike will have some rolling terrain on trail and road. You’ll enjoy some much-deserved hot chocolate and s’mores at the end of the hike, but feel free to bring along your own water and snacks.
