One Saturday evening every month through the end of the year, Hilltop Orchards is leading a 1.5-hour hiking trek, with a full-moon bonfire and 6-varietal Furnace Brook Winery tasting at the end of the trail. Weather permitting, these hikes are extremely popular. In fact, they turn into snowshoe treks come winter, with limited space at 60 hikers, so be sure to book yours today by calling 1.800.833.6274 (must be 21 or over).
What Can I Expect?
Our experienced guide is Holly Brouker, with comprehensive knowledge of American Indian traditions relating to the moon. Her treks consist of a light trail hike with informative discussions, followed by a bonfire, wine tastings, and entertainment. Holly sets off promptly at 6:30pm, so be sure to arrive at Hilltop Orchards 15 minutes early to check-in, use the restroom, and tie on your hiking boots. Also, it’s a good idea to bring a light snack and a bottle of water for the trail.
