Sugarloaf Brunch on Bald Mountain

September 21, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

| $40

Calling all hikers (and non-hikers, too)!

Sonoma Valley’s signature mountaintop is a must-do for avid hikers, but now non-hikers can enjoy the view in good company, too while supporting our beloved park!

Join us on Saturday, September 21 , 2019 as Bill & Dave Hikes and Sonoma Ecology Center present our Annual Brunch on Bald Mountain benefit to support Team Sugarloaf!

Enjoy the strenuous hike, led by Bill & Dave Hikes, to the top of Bald Mountain along the trails. Not up for the climb? Take the easy road! Team Sugarloaf partners will be happy to chauffeur you to the top! This is a rare opportunity to enjoy this peak experience, as vehicles are not normally permitted.

Whether you choose to hike or ride, upon arrival at the top, you will be treated to brunch snacks and incredible 360-degree views.

Enjoy the morning air, incredible views, a tasty meal, and, more importantly a fun, easy way to support this Sonoma County treasure!

This special event is by reservation only.

Proceeds support Team Sugarloaf’s operation and maintenance of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park.
