Let's celebrate Christmas: feel free to bring xmas goodies to share at the top. Top marks to anyone bringing up a whole turkey with stuffing. :)
***Bring a fleece - it could get chilly as we hang out to watch Mr. Moon rise. Last month, he was gorgeously orange and big. Amazing!!
The peak is now called Dixie Peak and the preserve has conveniently shown the name on the post that takes us to the right about half way up.
Length: about 3 miles, but don't let the short distance fool you - it's very steep
Time: between hiking and picnicking - about 2-3 hours
What to bring: headlamp/flashlight, water of course, picnic items to share
We'll welcome Mr. Moon as he rises at 6:54 pm.
Note: the trail is steep and rather rocky; not recommended for beginners
Directions to trailhead: take Shea Blvd to 40th Street, turn south and go a few blocks to the parking lot at the end of the road.
