Full moon Hulda Crooks park hike

  • This location is shown only to members

This is a special hike because it's a full moon night.  We'll begin the hike at a later time, 6:45p..  So bring something warm to wear and a snack to share with friends at the top. 

what: Fullmoon hike and Snack bar at the turnaround (~3mile point).  This will be a different route from the usual.  It will also be a bit more challenging because of the extended distance and 3 additional hills added to the hike.  The hill leading up to the turnaround is the steepest I've seen so far of all the trails I've hiked at Hulda Crooks Park.  But don't worry, it's a short climb at this point.  If you've been doing our weekday Blue Mountain hikes, pushing yourself, you'll be fine.

Plan to be at the turnaround for at least a half hour where we'll share in all the food and drinks under a well lit Fullmoon sky.  Please go to the comment section below to indicate what snack item you like to bring. I'm thinking finger foods, chips, salsa, a little wine, etc... This will not be a BBQ.  So don't bring the steaks....LOL!

where: Hulda Crooks Park, 11800 Mountain View Ave, Loma Linda, Ca

when: Tuesday, August 20th@6:45p.. The moon is scheduled to rise at 8:19p. providing us a well lit area by the time we get to the picnic area.

difficulty: semi strenuous - please know your limits

distance: ~5.5 miles

time: 3-3.5 hours

what: Look for me at the far left parking lot as you drive into the park at Mountain View and Beaumont Avenue. I will be driving the Silver Hyundai Elantra. If you need to call me or txt, my number is,[masked]-7132.

what to bring: plenty of water[masked] oz bottles, something to snack on, your food item for the potluck, running shoes or hiking boots, comfortable/warm clothing, flash light or headlamp.

If you bring a guest you must stay with them and are responsible for their safety

    What a perfect evening for a fullmoon hike. The moon was the brightest and fullest since doing these hikes. And it nicely cooled down. Thanks Julie for taking the lead and remembering the trail back to the parking lot =). Also, thanks to everyone for bringing snacks to munch on at the peak. It was nice having food to eat while sitting under the moon lit sky. You guys made it a very nice evening. Thanks again!

    Hi everyone, due to the high number of people interested in coming to the Fullmoon hike up Blue Mountain and limited parking there, I'm changing the venue to Hulda Crooks park.

    I'd love to do a full moon hike and this looks like a great one, but I feel I'm not yet ready :-(
