Full Moon Hike on the Hillside

  • This location is no longer available

Meet at Upper O'Malley entrance to Chugach State Park to catch the sunset to the west and the moonrise to the east. We can take any one of the many hiking trails for a 30 minute to 2 hour walk depending on who shows up and how the weather is - clear or cloudy. Moon rise is 8:45 PM so it'll barely be getting dark by the time the moon rises. But by next month, in May, there will be effectively no moonrise at all. Web resource for sunrise and sun set, etc

    This was billed as a Full Moon hike. We had that PLUS a fabulous sunset, a bluff charging moose, northern lights (the first that many of us had seen this winter) and a pack of howling coyotes.

    Started at 8:30 pm to the Alaskan light followed by a beautiful sunset. Moon made it over the mountain range at 9:30 or so giving us some gentle light. Did encounter a rather irritable moose that forced us off our down trail. Our advantage was to have additional time to watch the northern lights and then at the end to listen to a pack of coyotes howling and yipping at the moon. Couldn't have been better.
