Sugarloaf State Park re-opens



On Thursday, Feb. 1, Sugarloaf Ridge State Park will re-open its gates to the public, following its closure in the wake of last October’s wildfires.

Team Sugarloaf’s partner, the Robert Ferguson Observatory, has already held its first star party since the fires, giving locals an early glimpse at the beloved park and at the stars, as seen through $250,000 worth of telescopes saved from the fires.

Sugarloaf’s McCormick Addition, with access from Los Alamos Road and Hood Mountain Regional Park, has been open since Jan. 20, but the main park gates open on Feb. 1. Some trails will remain closed for repairs, including Brushy Peaks, Vista, Red Mountain, and Headwaters trails. Camping opens on Feb. 15 in half the campground. Full re-opening is expected by April 15. Reservations are being accepted now.

The park remains subject to closures due to weather. For updates watch the Sugarloaf website, www.sugarloafpark.org, and the Facebook page.
