Each month during the summer, volunteers light the trail to the mesa top for a full moon program before the twin spires. A speaker tells the story of the people and their likely relationship with the moon, sun, and stars. Watch the full moon rise over the eastern mountain peaks to the music of a Native American flute. You’ll be torn between looking West to see the spectacular sunset or focusing on the eastern mountain range to see the first sliver of moon. On the way to the Great House Pueblo for the program, the trail rises 200 feet in elevation over one third mile (one way). The trail is unimproved and includes a steep, rocky section. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a flashlight. Water is encouraged, all other food and beverages are banned from the mesa top outside of your vehicle.
