Carlsbad Caverns NP offering ranger-guided night hikes

Carlsbad Caverns National Park is offering ranger-guided night hikes today and Saturday.

The hike is 1.5 miles roundtrip through the Chihuahuan Desert.

“You will explore a variety of topics related to darkness at Carlsbad Caverns National Park,” the national park said.

The program is free on a first-come, first served basis with a maximum of 12 participants for each program. One must be at least 8 years old to attend.

Participants are asked to bring a red-light flashlight or red-light handlamp to preserve your night vision.

“We will provide red-light headlamps if you do not have one,” officials said.

The program could be canceled, weather-permitting.
