Animals of the Night Hike
October 20 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:30pm, repeating until October 25, 2020
Come join Joy and Sean on this family-friendly night hike up on Pyramid Bench. You will have the opportunity to learn all about our nocturnal wildlife while we hike this scenic 4km route. There will be great views of our Dark Sky Preserve from the trail as well as the town lit up at night.
Details: Everyone is required to bring a flashlight (fully-charged phone is fine) for safety; however, we plan on not using them for much of the hike. We will rely on our eyes adjusting to night vision instead. A dim, red light or red cellophane wrap is acceptable and if you have a headlamp that can switch between the two settings, that’s ideal. Good hiking shoes will be mandatory as we will be out there in the dark, in potentially snowy conditions. Expect an elevation gain of around 100m.
Jasper National Park is the largest accessible Dark Sky Preserve in the World!
