Looking for a magical outdoors holiday experience? Join us on Tuesday, December 26, 2:00-5:30 PM, for an evening under the stars as we climb to the top of Mount Norwottuck on the Mount Holyoke Range in Amherst to bask in the light of the full moon. December’s full moon is called the Long Nights Moon.

Adventure EastThis hike, in partnership with Adventure East, will begin at our Kestrel Land Trust headquarters located at the foot of the beautiful Mount Holyoke Range. We’ll climb for approximately an hour and a half before arriving to the top of Norwottuck. Once there, we will stop to take in the iconic views and watch the moon rise over the Pelham Hills and enjoy a snack provided by your Adventure East guide. Returning to the trailhead, we’ll have the unique opportunity to take in the sights and sounds of the forest at night, guided by the light of the moon. Headlamps will also be provided.

Registration is required, and Kestrel members receive a 20% discount for this event by using the discount code: KLTMOON. Your discounted price will be $24 instead of $30.


Can’t make it this month? Full Moon Hikes with Adventure East will take place every month, weather permitting. See the upcoming dates and start times listed below. Registration is required for each monthly hike.
