Some good times to go night hiking. After you have
initially gotten comfortable with night hiking, we would like to recommend
to you a few times that can be fun and create a challenge for you
and your friends while night hiking.
One good time to go night hiking is the first blizzard
or snow storm of the season, when no one is out driving and everyone
would think you are crazy. This is a great time to challenge yourself.
Another good time is, assuming that there is no lightning,
going out night hiking right before it rains is fun to get caught
in. Getting deep in the woods, then trying to find your way out before
the storm comes can be exhilarating. You don’t have to go looking
for this time. Most likely if you go night hiking a lot you probably
will experience something like this. Even when raining hard, the trees
typically will pick most of the hard rain up and you won’t get
considerably wet for a longer time than just standing in an open area.
