Celebrate the New Year with Sugarloaf Ridge State Park and California State Parks in this annual nationally-held hike! We’ll have two different routes to chose from: a Naturalist-guided, 2-mile family hike, or a 5.25 to 6.5-mile trek to Bald Mountain, which includes a climb of 1,500 feet and features fantastic 360-degree views of Sonoma Valley, Napa Valley, and San Francisco. The final routes will be determined the day-of by trail conditions.
The Bald Mountain hike begins promptly at 9:00am from the White Barn, whereas the Family Hike begins at 10:00am outside the Visitor Center. Wear appropriate footwear for muddy or slippery trails and warm layers (it could be cold or windy up here!). Bring water, snacks, sun protection, and if heading to the summit, pack a lunch. Bring a reusable drink container for your little one to enjoy free hot cocoa post-hike, if desired. Free event; RSVP required. Be prepared for inclement weather but heavy rains cancel. Parking fees apply.
Ease of access: we’re unable to determine ease of access due to the final route being determined the day of the event.
