Red Lock Trail at Night Hike

Trail Map: http://www.nps.gov/cuva/planyourvisit/uploa...

           This hike is rated rugged and difficult but fun due to terrain and elevation changes. The weather should be variable for this due to the time of year. Wear a good hiking shoe because of roots and rough ground and head lamp. The area is curently wet from rain and snowfall. Recommend water. We will be hiking this at a relatively fast pace and moving counter clockwise around the loop starting with the Valley Trail. It will then connect back to Red Lock on the Buckeye Trail moving south. This is a fun area along with interesting climbs and ridges that make for an enjoyable workout. One of my favorite trails in the whole park. Starting this at 6:30 pm.  A waning gibbous moon starts on January 1, 2013 (and ends on January 5, 2013 approximately) visible most of the night. The hike is  for helping to develop a sense of night orienteering and trust in personal intuition.  This hike is aprox 6.50miles.  phone[masked]

 Always remember to prepare well and hike at your own risk

    Just a note a caution if you haven't hiked this trail much. The terrain will be ice covered and dangerous on decending hills, creek crossings and swamp areas at night. If you are challenged by your strength, balance and footing, I do not recommend hiking this hike.
