Honoring an Ancient Maple, Witnessing a park reborn @ Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Oct 20 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Join us for a very special FREE fall event where we will pay homage to one of Sonoma County’s most impressive trees, as it enters its final stages of life. As we walk, we’ll witness the park’s rebounding flora.

We will start with an easy one-mile walk along meadow trail to the Heritage Maple at Sonoma Creek. Along the way, park naturalists will discuss the various ways plants are recovering from last years fires.

We will gather by the Heritage Maple at the meadow bridge. This mighty tree, thought to have been one of the areas largest big leaf maples during its prime, has reached its twilight years, and the fires wrought additional damage. This tree holds a special place in the heart of many area residents. Two of them, Breck Parkman, Retired Senior State of California Archaeologist and longtime Sugarloaf resident, and valley resident and poet, Michael Sheffield, will tell tales of the tree and the park during its life.

After the ceremony, we will hike back to the group camp to enjoy light refreshments. Donations are gratefully accepted.

Please join us for this special event, in an amazing place, honoring a unique tree with your friends.

This special event is by reservation only. https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3619298

Proceeds support Team Sugarloaf’s operation and maintenance of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park.

TICKETS: Free (parking fees apply).

ABOUT SUGARLOAF RIDGE STATE PARK / TEAM SUGARLOAF:

Sugarloaf Ridge State Park was among the 70 state parks slated for closure on July 1, 2012. Thanks to Team Sugarloaf, a collaboration of five partner organizations led by Sonoma Ecology Center, the park and all park services including hiking, picnicking, camping and the Robert Ferguson Observatory are open and accessible to the public.

Dedicated volunteers from Valley of the Moon Observatory, Valley of the Moon Natural History Association, United Camps Conferences and Retreats, Sonoma County Trails Council and Sonoma Ecology Center comprise Team Sugarloaf, which will operate and maintain Sugarloaf Ridge for the next five years ensuring public access to its trails, campgrounds and incredible vistas. Our partners at State Parks support the park with natural resource and cultural resource management.

Operation of the park is made possible by the generous support of our community.

HOW IT WORKS
Every half hour our Shuttle will leave from either North Sonoma Mountain (on the hour) or Jack London State Park upper lot (on the half hour).

Riding first and hiking back to your car is the easiest way—no worries about how long you take to finish your hike.

Pick-ups at North Sonoma Mountain Park.

——ON THE HALF-HOUR——
Pick-ups at Jack London State Historic Park.

We recommend a reservation, but you can ride on a space available basis as well.

This 9-mile one-way hike should take 4 to 5 hours.

The hike includes nearly 2,000 feet of climbing, so bring sunscreen, snacks, and lots of water.
