Full Moon Hike at Lost Dutchman State Park
On Sunday, February 17, and Monday, February 18, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., there will be a guided 2.5-mile hike on Jacob’s Crosscut Trail at the base of the mysterious Superstition Mountains. Hikers should dress appropriately and wear trail shoes or boots, as well as bring a flashlight (no headlamps). Some parts of the trail are rocky and uneven, with occasional steep grades. The trail is not suitable for strollers or walkers, and pets are not allowed. After the hike, there will be a campfire to gather around and roast marshmallows (marshmallows and sticks provided). Hikers are asked to meet at the Palo Verde Day Use area.
Location: 6109 N. Apache Trail, Apache Junction. There is a limit of 100 hikers per night, so call 480-982-4485 in advance to reserve your space. For more information on this event and other Arizona State Parks events, visit AZStateParks.com.
