  • Moderate Hike

Few views are as spectacular as a sunset and moon rise from the top of Black Mountain. Join docents Paul Billig, Debbi Brusco, and Katherine Greene, as you witness both rise and set happening just minutes apart. The hike begins with a moderate climb up the Bella Vista, Old Ranch, and Montebello Road Trails where you’ll stop to enjoy the dinner you bring. Afterward as you descend, the moonlight will illuminate the distant hills. Bring a pad or plastic to sit on. Red filters for your flashlight will be provided for those who need them. The hike includes a 700-foot elevation gain. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after September 28.

Meet at the Preserve parking lot on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
