Moonlit/Pre-Sunset Guided Hike in the Old Pueblo. Exciting scorpion hunting included under moonlight after a colorful sunset.

Join us1

The day is ending in Tucson so turn your attention to the stars & our clear sky. It's time to see the many faces of the Sonoran Desert while enjoying some of the most magnificent sunsets on earth.

MOONLIT GUIDED HIKES are offered from 4 days prior, to the day of and 4 days after a full moon. End your day with a brilliantly beautiful sunset followed by a moonlit guided hike. Flashlights, black lights, the stars and your trail guide will guide your way with help of the moon. It's fun! See the sun set over giant Saguaro cacti. Be amazed at the beauty & awesome views before you as the clear desert night comes alive! The black UV lights pick up the flourescence of our desert critters, the elusive scorpion. They can't hide from us! Your trail guide will explain what desert life is all about...the unusual plants seen before the sun goes down and, if we're lucky, we'll come across some wildlife like coyotes, cactus wren, small lizards, roadruners or javelina (pronounced have-a-lee-nuh). Then the night sky becomes our beacon as we traverse trails, many walked upon by ancient people who left behind stories etched in the rocks called petroglyphs. We'll have to see them before dark, of course.  They leave from various trail heads. Start times vary with sunset & time of year.

There's a trail for just about anyone with any physical ability, from beginner to intermediate to those who challenge the elevations and boulders of the largest mountains around.
