Sugarloaf Ridge State Park

Sugarloaf Ridge State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Sugarloaf Ridge’s Bald Mountain holds bragging rights to one of the prettiest and most serene viewpoints in the Bay Area. From a relatively diminutive height of 2,729 feet, views include every significant wine country peak and valley. This hike starts at the edge of a sloping meadow, and climbs steadily through a mixture of grassland, chaparral, and mixed woodland for 2.5 miles to the summit. The return route travels along a quiet ridge, drops steeply through gray pines and chaparral to cross Sonoma Creek twice, then wanders through a meadow on the way back to the trailhead."

"Follow a nature trail and a Planet Walk in the Sonoma mountains"

"A challenging 1550-foot climb from an enclosed, remote valley to the top of Bald Mountain, where you’ll take in far-flung views of Northern California. Cross oak woodlands and chaparral slopes, and detour to a seasonal vernal pool on wide service roads with a short paved segment. These trails can be hot in summer."

This hike was great. I saw blacktail deer, wild turkeys and various types of birds. The views of the valley are awesome.
