Enjoy the big, beautiful outdoors at Sugarloaf




Sugarloaf Ridge State Park is open. Park visitors must comply with social distancing, hygiene, and face-covering requirements, such as:

  • Stay at least six feet from others who are not part of your household.
  • Carry a face covering at all times. Coverings must be worn outdoors when you cannot stay six feet from others, such as when passing others on a trail.
  • Do not use drinking fountains. Bring your own water.
  • Do not use group facilities.
Sugarloaf has resumed small, 12-person, socially-distanced events. If you have any questions, contact Alma Shaw at 833-5712, or go to www.sugarloafpark.org.

Creekside Nature Hike

Sept. 19 and Sept. 26, 9:30-11 a.m.

Come on a 1.4-mile nature hike along the Sonoma Creek. On the hike your leader will teach you about the plants, animals, and aquatic life of Sonoma Creek. The hike starts at the Visitors Center. No fee, but parking charges apply. The first hike starts at 9:30 a.m., second starts at 11 a.m. Sign up at Visitor Center or RSVP to alma@sonomaecologycenter.org. Limited to 12 participants.

Yoga Hike

Sept. 19,

10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Susan Topf’s Yoga Hike balances a mix of easy hiking and gentle yoga postures, breath work and guided meditation. No mat necessary. Please wear weather-appropriate clothing to feel comfortable being in a natural setting and bring water (as needed) and your mask.

Route varies on weather conditions and group interest, and typically covers 2-3 miles of varied terrain. Cost is $25 and includes parking if registered in advance online. Purchase the yoga pass for each group of three sessions this year and save $15. All levels and ages welcome. Meet at the Visitor’s Center unless otherwise noted in confirmation email prior to the hike. Limited to 12 participants.

To sign up, go to sec.simpletix.com/e/57882.

Sugarloaf Trail Crew

Sept. 24,

9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Help Sugarloaf with trail restoration work. Work includes bridge and step construction, installing signs, clearing, lifting, carrying and hiking. Bring gloves, hat, and water that you can carry hands-free (i.e. bring a backpack). Wear long pants, boots or sturdy shoes and sunscreen. Poison oak is present, so long sleeves are suggested.

There will be tools provided and trained crew leaders with tasks for all. Those under 18 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Food and beverages will also be provided.
