On Friday, May 28, experience Pinnacles National Monument under the cool moonlight. A Ranger led easy two-mile hike will introduce visitors to the visual poetry of the ParkÝs moonlit landscape.
Visitors with confirmed reservations should meet at the Bear Gulch Visitor Center, located inside the east entrance of the monument, at 8:30 PM. Bring water, layered clothing, sturdy shoes or boots. Though we plan to hike exclusively with the natural light of the moon, hikers should carry a small flashlight with some red material to cover the lens. The program will end back at the Visitor Center by 10:30 PM.
For program details or to make RESERVATIONS please call (831) 389-4485, extension 235 from 9:00 AM ˝ 5:00 PM. Pinnacles National Monument is designated as a fee collection site and operates as a day use park.
