Full Moon Hike - Mt. Holyoke Range

$45.00 per person - Experience full

Join us for an exciting evening under the stars as we climb to the top of Norwottuck Mountain on the Mount Holyoke Range in Amherst to soak up the rays of the full moon. This will be a great opportunity to see 1 of 4 supermoons that will occur in 2021!

Starting from the new Kestrel Land Trust headquarters, located at the foot of the beautiful Mount Holyoke Range, we will climb for approximately an hour and a half before arriving to the top of Norwottuck. There, we will stop to take in the iconic views and watch the moon rise over the Pelham Hills. As we return to the trailhead, we'll have the unique opportunity to enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest at night, guided by the light of the moon.

Your participation in this adventure directly supports the Kestrel Land Trust and their mission to preserve open space and provide access to outdoor recreation.
