Full Moon Hiking

When: Sat., Aug. 13 2011

Beneath the city lights, it's easy to forget how beautiful a summer's night sky can be — especially when the moon is full. Get a reminder tonight with a hike through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Meet at the Kendall Lake shelter at 8 p.m. for a 2.2-mile trek along moderately difficult trails illuminated by the full moon, and experience sights and sounds unknown to your sorry peers who are holed away in urban bars and nightclubs. And in a change of pace from the usual breed of downtown wildlife, you may catch a glimpse of raccoons, coyotes, skunks, owls, or other nighttime prowlers. As usual, the cost is nada, and the hike — led by an experienced guide — should last about two hours. — Lydia Munnell1000 Truxell Road, Peninsula, 330-650-2752, nps.gov/cuva
