Join us for what’s sure to be an exciting evening of watching the fireworks from atop the hills in Irvine’s Open Space. Registration opens on June 5th. The website will allow up to 3 people per registration, including the registrant.
This is a challenging hike geared toward experienced hikers with appropriate hiking shoes. Come and enjoy a little nighttime in the wilderness and celebrate our country’s independence. Flashlights are not needed by most participants, only low power ones with red LEDs or filters should be used if necessary in order to preserve night vision.
Bring a pad (kneeling pads work well) or blanket, which you can carry up the trail, to sit on while watching the fireworks. The viewing location that we will be using is on an incline, it is too steep for chairs. Hiking poles are recommended; bring binoculars to watch the fireworks. Wear appropriate clothing layers, it will be warm hiking up and cool while watching the fireworks.
Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-4 activity on the land.
