Event Details

Magic? Fairies? Mythical beasts? What could that glow in the forest be?  

Come find out at Anna Ruby Falls’ Foxfire Night Hike. Guests will be treated with a guided hike up to the falls and will get to view the amazing bioluminescent phenomenon that is Foxfire.  

The Foxfire Night Hikes will take place at Anna Ruby Falls Scenic Area. We will be hiking up the paved .4 mile trail (.8 miles round trip). Portions of the trail are steep, but we will be taking it slow for hikers of all abilities. The hikes will occur at night with limited visibility.  

While we all love our furry friends, pets are NOT permitted at this event.


Gates open at 7:30 pm

Program starts at 8:00 pm and lasts around 2 hours.


What to Bring

Red-light flashlight (if you have one available). We will not permit the use of any other flashlights, because they disrupt the viewing of Foxfire and make it difficult for participants’ eyes to adjust to the dark.
Wear comfortable walking shoes
Shoes should be closed toed shoes
Depending on the weather, you may also want to bring a light jacket or rain gear (Remember nights are often cooler than the day)
