Event Description

Join Joe Stodola, astronomer and member of the Grants Pass Astronomers, on a night hike to share the wonders of the night sky at the top of the Rock. A full blue moon is scheduled to reach its full phase and will lie almost directly opposite the sun in the sky placing it above the horizon for much of the night. Bring flashlights, binoculars and a roll up pad to lie on if you have them; sturdy shoes, a warm jacket and long pants are recommended. The hike is free, but registration is required: https://astronomy-hike-2019.eventbrite.com

Hikers will meet at the trailhead for a 2.5–4.5 mile round trip hike up 800 feet along a moderate grade trail. Participants should dress for the weather and terrain and bring water and snacks since hikes to the top may last 3 to 4 hours. Restrooms are available only at the trailhead; there is no drinking water. Due to limited parking at the trailhead, carpooling is encouraged. To help protect this special place, dogs and vehicles are not allowed on the trail.
