Each year, RidgeGate teams up with the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District to provide free, guided nature hikes throughout RidgeGate’s expansive bluffs trail system.

These hikes are led by professional naturalists from the district, and offer insight and education into the natural ecosystems within the open space at RidgeGate, while offering a chance to get some fresh air and exercise. Hikes are free to the public.

Buck Moon

Full Antlers in Place. Hike up to a breathtaking vista to experience the rising moon (9:10 pm) after an introduction into night vision in animals and humans. Sunset is at 8:22 pm, so we’ll be descending in twilight and by the light of the full moon. Flashlights may be welcome due to the degree of darkness.

Meet at the parking lot on the south end of the baseball fields at Prairie Sky Park, on the north side of Crossington Way. We’ll walk the Willow Spring Trail, so expect a moderate to a briefly steep incline with little to no shade and a path that doesn’t accommodate strollers well. Come dressed for the weather with sturdy walking shoes, drinking water, sunblock, hat and insect repellent as desired.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES. REGISTER HERE.
