Hike to Neptune at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park

Friday, February 20, 2015 

Join Friday Nature Hikes as we make a return trip to Neptune, a part of the Planet Walk at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. We’ll follow the Creekside, Hillside and Brushy Peak trails to just beyond the Neptune marker, stopping at a picnic table for snacks before heading back. Those who want to go further can continue on to Pluto. The total distance to the picnic table is 5-6 miles, with an elevation gain of 700 feet. This moderate hike should take about 3 1/2 hours, including the snack stop and lunch following the hike. 

Meet at 9:20 am in the main parking lot for a prompt 9:30 am departure. Please bring water and a snack. Take a bag lunch if you plan to eat with the group at the picnic area across from the parking lot. Our February hike is sponsored by Valley of the Moon Natural History Association, Team Sugarloaf and California State Parks.

Please join us Saturday, March 7, at 9:30 AM as the Sonoma Ecology Center presents our Annual Brunch on Bald Mountain benefit to support Team Sugarloaf.  Enjoy the strenuous hike to the top of Bald Mountain and invite your non-hiking friends to take the easy way – Team Sugarloaf partners will be happy to chauffeur them to the top!  It is a rare opportunity since vehicles are not normally permitted.  Whether you choose to hike or ride, upon arrival at the top everyone will be treated to a hearty picnic brunch and incredible 360-degree views.  Enjoy the morning air, incredible views, a tasty meal, and a fun and easy way to support this Sonoma County treasure.  This special event is by reservation only at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1149469.  Dave and I are counting on your support of this annual Sugarloaf fundraiser.
