Full Moon Walks
Winter Full Moon Night Walk
For an unforgettable winter experience, join Rocky Mountain National Park rangers for a Full Moon Walk on the night of the full moon in winter months. The next full moon Walks in the Moonlight are on Dec. 11, 2019, Jan. 10, 2020, Feb. 9, 2020, and Mar. 9, 2020.
Reservations are required no more than 7 days in advance. Call 970-586-1223 between 9a – 4p daily. There is a maximum of 6 people per reservation.
If you’re part of an organized group, call 970-586-1338 to ask if Park Rangers are available to provide a special program for your group.
The January full moon is called a wolf moon! In 2019 it was also a supermoon and blood moon. Supermoon means it’s very close to earth, and blood moon refers to the reddish color caused by the lunar eclipse.
You’ll go out with a ranger in a small group (maximum 6 people per reservation) for about two hours from 7pm – 9pm. Location will vary and will be given to you when you make your reservation. Tip: consider bringing a flashlight, hiking poles, and microspikes for your boots if icy conditions exist.
When you reserve your lodging, look for a property with an outdoor hot tub — it will feel so good and relaxing to come home to a hot soak!
Reservations open 1 week in advance of the full moon date, and are limited to 6 people per reservation. At the time of reserving a spot, you’ll be given instructions. Call 970-586-1223 between 9am – 4pm to reserve a spot.
