Full Moon Night Walk
July 31, 2023
Walk through dusk and into the night while listening to the sounds of nature after dark and watching for moonrise. The park closes at dusk, so this is a great opportunity to hike with Ranger Jonah. Wear appropriate footwear, dress for the weather, and bring a refillable water bottle, flashlight or headlamp and hiking sticks if you need them. Meet at the South Peachtree Creek trailhead near the Mason Mill Tennis Center. Due to the popularity of this hike, pre-registration is required. No pets.
