Join Us For A Full Moon Walk On Mount Wanda!
Join National Park Service rangers for Full Moon walks on Mount Wanda. This free, two-hour program features a one-mile, moderately strenuous hike to watch the Full Moon rise over nearby Mount Diablo. Atop Mount Wanda's 640-foot summit, visitors can use spotting scopes to view more detailed features of the Moon. Listen to the chorus of night sounds and keep an eye out for the nocturnal native grey fox.
Reservations are suggested. Please call the John Muir NHS visitor center at 925-228-8860 to make a reservation. Visitors should meet at the CalTrans Park and Ride lot at the corner of Alhambra Avenue and Franklin Canyon Road, Martinez (at the Alhambra Avenue exit off Highway 4). Bring water, a flashlight, warm clothes, and binoculars (if you have them). Wear comfortable walking shoes, as the trail is steep. If it rains heavily, the walk will be canceled.
