Back Country Hikes

Friday Nature Hikes

Sugarloaf Ridge State Park

Friday, December 11, 2015 

Join Friday Nature Hikes on December 11 as we walk to Neptune, a part of the Planet Walk at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. We will 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, which is a bit slippery and mushy, if it actually rains).  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 December hike is sponsored by Jack London Park Partners and Team Sugarloaf.
