Moonlight Madness Hike: Bedford Peak, 7.4 Miles Moderate

  • Jun 10, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Full Moon is Thursday, so we'll enjoy the twilight hike to the top of Bedford Peak. We'll meet at the end of Silverado Canyon at the Maple Springs Visitor Center. If the gate is open, there's more parking along the road to the trailhead.

The hike is a total of 7.4 miles total. We'll stop at the top for potluck snacks and to enjoy the splendid views from the top of this peak before returning to the parking lot. Total elevation gain is about 2,000 feet for a nice weeknight stretch of the legs.  Full moon is actually 2 days after, so we'll be walk in the setting sun and then the moon will already be up.  

It's a warm trail so bring a liter or two of water.  You should bring a headlamp or flashlight, but please be judicious in its use.  Everyone is welcome. This is a dog-friendly location.

Total time is just at 5 hours. We'll likely be back at the cars before 11:30.

    We met and hiked. Exactly the amount of time predicted. Fast paced but with several pauses. We stopped at the plateau, shared snacks. Took pictures and saw Corona in the distance. I liked the hike back down through the cloud/mist. It looked cool across the valley as we descended. Perfect weather, rocky descent. And a moonlit night. Thanks to the ''guy with the chihuahua'' for his lead.

    Also, don't forget your Adventure pass. I checked the Cleveland National Forest site and the gate is reportedly open, so there's parking along the road past the gate. I'll check the website again tomorrow.
