Sugarloaf Ridge        
Bald Mountain and Beyond Hike 

On Saturday September 13, 2014,  meet Bill and Dave in the main parking lot of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park.  Please arrive by 8:45 AM for a prompt  9:00 departure.  We will hike to the top of Bald Mountain and then beyond to the rarely visited old red barn.  This barn and a cabin foundation are all that remain of the Hurd family ranch; homesteaders in the early 1900’s.  The cabin was used as a hunting club in the 1940’s and 50’s and burned down in the 60’s.  See stunning views of both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys as well as the entire Bay Area.  This  strenuous hike has a total elevation gain of 2200 feet, covers 9.5 miles, and takes approximately 6 hours round trip.  Wear sturdy hiking shoes and layered clothing and bring a lunch and plenty of liquids.  Please consider carpooling and note that there is an $ 8 parking fee at Sugarloaf Ridge .  This hike is co-sponsored by The Valley of the Moon Natural History Association and Team Sugarloaf.  For more information, call Dave Chalk at 539-8847,  Bill Myers at 833-4128, or check us out at www.billanddavehikes.com.
