Description

We will hike from the Cairn at Queenston until we get to the steep switch back which goes down the escarpment. We will not go down the escarpment but rather turn around to make our way back.

A waxing crescent moon may or may not be visible.

Please bring a head lamp or a flashlight.

As an option, please download a free app such as Skyview Lite or Star Tracker Lite and we will look at the stars with our smart phones.

This hike will count towards the Night Hike Badge.

Please note, there is a fee for parking $1.25 per hour paid at meters by credit card. This hike should take no more than 2 hours.
