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 (December through March).
Call the Park for scheduled dates and reservation. 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.
