Full Moon Hike to Ram Head
This afternoon will be a great time to experience the spectacular view from Ram Head Point at Sunset. The sun will set in the west at 6:38 and the moon will rise shortly afterward at 6:43 PM. The moon should give plenty of light for the hike back, but nonetheless, be sure and bring a flashlight to safely negotiate tricky parts of the hike.
Another option for early birds would be the sunrise Ram Head hike. The moon will set in the west at 5:34 AM and the sun will rise at 5:55 AM tomorrow morning
