Final Full Moon Walk
The final Full Moon Walk of the year on Mount Wanda will be Saturday, October 15, at 5:30pm. Join park ranger Nate Tusa for an interpretive walk on the beautiful Mount Wanda trails under the night sky. This very popular, free, two-hour program includes a one-mile, moderately strenuous hike to Mt. Wanda’s 640-foot summit to watch the full moon rise over nearby Mt. Diablo. At three breaks along the way up Ranger Tusa will ask trivia questions. At the top, hikers will have access to telescopes to view the moon and planets. According to Tusa, “You will be able to see the rings of Saturn, the red color of mars and various constellations as well.”
