Full Wolf Moon Moonlit Hike - McDowell
McDowell Mountain Regional Park
January's Full Moon is named after the time of year when wolves would 'howl hungrily' in the throes of midwinter snows. There are no wolves in the Phoenix area, and most likely we won't see any snow... but we'll learn about the reintroduced Mexican gray wolf population in Northern Arizona as we hike along the Pemberton Trail to the Pemberton Pond on this (almost full) moonlit hike. If we're lucky, we'll hear the happy (not hungry) howls of our healthy McDowell coyote population, along the trail. Meet at the Trailhead Staging Area. Hike is approximately 3 miles and 2 hours. Flashlights are permitted, but not necessary. No pets please. Hiking time is 2 hours, 3 miles
