I have been into these night hikes lately. Mainly cause none of my friends are off work till 5 then it's dark out. Many times we use winter as an excuse to not be outdoors but night hiking is a lot of fun and very doable in our area.

I am seeing a lot of people be curious about night hiking. Before you know it we will have night hiker Facebook groups! It isn't anymore unsafe then the day time to hile, if you are properly geared up. Sometimes chance of seeing animals is less but then there are the nocturnal ones.

We ventured out about 6:15 PM and were done by 7:30. Not too long but gave us a sweat and was just nice getting outside. Often during the shorter days and winter nights we stay inside. Looking forward to more winter hikes.
