Pink Moon Walk

Cabrillo Moonlight

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, Native Americans called the April full moon the “Pink Moon” because it heralded the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox, one of the first spring flowers.  You can watch the “Pink Moon” rise from the most spectacular viewing spot in San Diego: Cabrillo National Monument.

Join us from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm on Tuesday, April 15 for a ranger or volunteer led hike along the Bayside Trail, and for some incredible photo opportunities of the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean and the moon rising over the harbor and the city.

Anyone participating in the hike will meet at the traffic circle, and you may want to bring your own flashlight in case the moon doesn’t provide enough light.  No alcohol is permitted.

Sunset will occur at 7:19 pm and moon rise will occur at 8:01 pm.

Tickets are $10 per vehicle (free to CNMC members), and you can purchase them here.  The admission fee can be applied to CNMC annual membership if you join within 30 days.
