Enjoy the unique sounds of the woods in winter on a full moon hike at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson. Let nature light the trail as hikers take in the howls of distant coyotes, hooting owls and the rustle of creatures in the underbrush.

Hiking dates for the season:  Dec. 29, Jan. 30, Feb. 28, and March 29. All hikes are from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Participants will meet at the parking lot of the nature center; the hike leader will guide a walk to Little Dyer Pond and back, for a total distance of about two and half miles.

If snow is on the ground, participants who don’t have their own snowshoes may borrow a pair from Midcoast Conservancy. Call or email the office to arrange for a pair and plan to arrive early to be fitted for snowshoes.

Please do not bring dogs on this hike, as they may scare off wildlife along the way! After the hike, warm up in one of the heated cabins at HVNC and enjoy a warm drink and the company of fellow hikers.
