Join Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center staff and enjoy a leisurely fall foliage hike to the top of Northfield Mountain where we'll enjoy the sun setting and the moon rising. Only one night past full, October's "Hunting Moon" should be a treat to watch as it rises over our mountain-top reservoir. Bring a snack or picnic supper for dining at the summit. The down-hill walk will be on a quiet, paved road, lit by moonlight (weather permitting!) Participants should dress in layers, bring a flashlight or headlamp, water and food. Hike participants should be in moderate condition and able to hike 4½ miles with an elevation gain of 800 feet. This free event is for ages 10 and older. Please pre-register by calling Northfield Mountain at 1-800-859-2960.
