Holiday Hikes Under the Full Moon!

December 10, 2018

PHOENIX –Celebrate the season with loved ones by taking on an adventure! Two opportunities at Lost Dutchman State Park give you the experience of a hike under the glow of the full moon.

The full moon glows over the Superstition Mountains at Lost Dutchman State Park.

Discover the Superstitions Mountains with a 2.5-mile hike in the park. Hikers will follow Jacob’s Crosscut Trail, a moderately difficult walk with views of the incredible mountain range and the stars sparkling overhead. This unique experience is a great opportunity for visitors and residents alike to find a whole new perspective of this landmark site full of legend and mystery.


Plus, as a holiday treat, gather ‘round the campfire after the hike to roast marshmallows (marshmallows and sticks provided) and connect with your fellow hikers. Find comfort and joy in a celebration of the holidays around a flickering fire and enjoy treats with the whole family.


No pets, please. There is a limit of 100 hikers for each night, so please call the park in advance to reserve your space: 480 982-4485.
