Huyck Preserve trails typically close at dusk but a few times a year we lead special night hikes! To attend this event, you MUST RSVP using the RSVP form below. For safety and organization, this hike is limited to 40 people on a first come first serve basis!
Please wear sturdy hiking shoes, dress in layers for a chilly night, and bring a headlamp or flashlight (red color preferred!). Hiking poles recommended if you need them. If sufficient snow is on the horizon, it is recommended that you bring snow shoes. We have a limited number of snowshoes available for rent at $5/pair. Please indicate on the RSVP form if you will need snowshoes.
