Dark Sky Telescope Hike

We have some pretty sick fantasies, but none ever centered on staring at the night sky through a telescope. Undaunted hat- and scarf-wearers and general-punishment gluttons can rendezvous at the secluded Estrella Mountain Regional Park for this 3.7-mile jaunt up the Toothaker Trail that ends at arguably the best place in the Valley to see stars and constellations, nebulae, and planets swirling around you. The trek is led by astronomy guide Steve Dermer, who’ll explain the science behind the beautiful, sparkling mess.
