Night Hike at Saddle Mountain 

Saddle Mountain Open Space Preserve, Santa Rosa 


please scroll down to register 

  Join LandPaths and Ag + Open Space for a magical night hike at Saddle Mountain Open Space Preserve, a 960-acre property protected by Ag+ Open Space since 2006. We’ll celebrate the Halloween spirit by spending time together in the woods, under the night sky. As we climb up the mountain, we’ll take some time to spot out the mysterious night creatures that only come out after dusk. Be sure to bring a flashlight for this spectacular evening adventure.  


Where:  Due to limted parking at the preserve, we will be arranging a carpool from a nearby location to the preserve. We will leave our cars there, and caravan over to the preserve in the least amount of cars possible. More details will released upon registration. 


What to bring: 

  • Water bottle and a dinner to eat on the top of the mountain  

  • Comfortable shoes 

  • A flashlight or headlamp 

  • Your favorite costume (that allows for hiking and moving in the forest!)

Details and what to expect:  

  • Our route will be a little over 3 miles, with some steep sections that may be difficult for some people. Hiking poles are recommended.

  • There are no bathrooms or potable water at the property

  • We will stay together as a group, and early departures cannot be accomodated 

  • We ask that you leave your pets at home for this event 

  • You will be asked to sign a liabilty waiver upon arrival 

  • This outing is free thanks to the Ag+Open Space district, and donations are welcome
