Maricopa County Parks and Recreation: Moonlight Hike – Mule Deer Trail

See the desert in a different light – moonlight! 

Join us for a 2-mile walk along Mule Deer Trail where we will look up at the night sky and experience the moonlight illuminating the Sonoran desert.  This is a moderate hike so please wear closed-toe shoes; water and flash lights are optional.  Please leave your dog at home.  See you all at Area 4 for the walk; we will gather near the restrooms.

Sign-up is required for all programs unless otherwise noted, and capacity for each program is limited to 10 people.  Please call the Visitor Center at 602-506-2930 ext. 5 to register for programs.  If you find you cannot attend a program you have registered for, please call the Visitor Center ASAP so we may contact those on the waiting list.
