Night Hikes

See Mt. Cuba Center in a new light – no light, that is! Embark on a guided Night Hike to experience the stars and sounds of our natural lands after dark.

Listen as the night comes alive with the chatter of owls, frogs, crickets, and maybe even a fox or two. Learn about the nocturnal animals that call our natural areas home and how to spot and listen for them once the sun goes down.

This tour is BYOF (bring your own flashlight). Guests should be prepared to hike sloping paths and navigate uneven terrain. Parking is available at 1003 Old Wilmington Road, just east of Brackenville Rd., in Hockessin, DE.
