Saturday, November 4 at 6:30pm
Shannon Pond
FREE to the public

Join Castle in the Clouds and the Moultonborough Recreation Department for a casual hike around Shannon Pond under the light of the full moon. This free program is wildly popular, and you won’t want to miss the full moon!

The Hike

The hike is on a self-guided trail around the pond, making a loop back to the starting point. Guests can take their time on the trail as it is self-guided. The proposed hiking trail is easy, family friendly and less than a mile. An extended trail will be available for those who want a longer hike than the loop around the pond. Wear warm, winter hiking boots. Guests are encouraged to bring a flashlight or headlamp as it will be dark on the property. This is a great way to get the family out for some good old fresh air!

After the hike warm up by a fire pit and enjoy hot cocoa and goodies compliments of Castle in the Clouds and the Moultonborough Rec Department. We are also planning on bringing a telescope to the field to view the night sky; feel free to bring your own if you’d like!


This free event is open to the public. Donations are appreciated to help us continue to provide programs similar to this in the future.


Remember to use Ossipee Park Road (the main entrance will be closed). Park in hiker parking located across from the entrance to the bottling plant, or in our main parking lot and hike to Shannon Pond to begin your Full Moon Hiking Adventure!
