Moon Shine and Morsels Night Hike

In the darkness of a country summer’s night, you’ll meet your guides and embark on a candlelit journey into the depths of an evergreen forest. Crossing over a babbling brook and ascending up an ancient glacial hill into a land of renewal. Stops along the way will help ground you and deepen your connection to the surrounding wilderness, all the while you’ll enjoy samplings of locally inspired spirits from Still Fired Distillery.

As the moon rises and shines light onto the site of an old orchard and farm, transformations can happen. Settle into an old barn where you will be served small but tasty delights. In the tranquility of an old pasture, expressions of gratitude will be offered for the bounty that the land provides. The descending hike back to the beginning will offer you time and space for peaceful reflection. Be prepared to go back home rejuvenated and transformed by this unique opportunity.
