July 4th Fireworks Hike at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
HIKE IS FILLING UP FAST! GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!
Calling all hikers! Join "Dave & Bill Hikes" this July 4th for our Second Annual Fireworks Hike & Fundraiser to support Sugarloaf Ridge State Park!
Celebrate Independence Day by climbing the tallest mountain in Sonoma Valley -- a spectacular vantage point to view as many as 18 different fireworks displays from throughout the Bay Area!
Upon arrival at the top, you'll enjoy a mountaintop reception, with light snacks and sweets, amid the beautiful sights of fireworks displays that span the Bay Area from Windsor in the north, Berkeley and Oakland in the east, San Francisco to the south, with possible views even into the south bay. Special thanks to Sugarloaf sponsors The Vineyards Inn and Cafe Citti, both of Kenwood, for their generous support. Thanks also to Sage Marketing of Sonoma for its generous donation.
This special July 4th fundraiser/hike is by reservation only.
Hike begins at 7 p.m., once the heat of the day begins to dissipate. Expect much cooler temperatures at the top of the park!
Space is limited to 120 guests. Last year's event was oversold! Don't miss out this year! Reserve your space now!
Price per ticket is $50, and 100% of proceeds support Team Sugarloaf's operation and maintenance of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park.
Kids 13-17 are free. Not recommended for children under 13.
Recommended for seasoned hikers, the total distance of this strenuous hike is 6.5 miles round-trip and the elevation gain is 1500 feet. The return trip is all down-hill via the access road, rather than the trail.
Hike begins promptly at 7pm in order to assure our arrival at the top before dark. Plan to arrive at the group camp site (near the Observatory) with your reservation confirmation around 6:45 PM.
*** DUE TO THE UNUSUAL HEAT, PLEASE BRING PLENTY OF WATER FOR YOUR HIKE UP. We'll have plenty to drink at the top. ***
Remember to bring a headlamp or flashlight. Binoculars optional.
Please be eco-conscious and bring your own cloth napkin.
Proper attire with sturdy hiking or trail shoes and layered clothing is a must. It should be nice and cool at the top so be prepared with an extra layer.
We will return to the parking lot at approximately 11pm.
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 2000-acre park and all park programs and services including hiking, picnicking, camping, guided hikes and nature walks, and the Robert Ferguson Observatory continue.
Team Sugarloaf assumed responsibility for park in July 2012, and will continue to manage it through 2017.
Team Sugarloaf partner organizations include Sonoma Ecology Center, Valley of the Moon Observatory, Valley of the Moon Natural History Association, United Camps Conferences and Retreats, and the Sonoma County Trails Council.
Operation of the park is made possible by the generous support of our community. To support Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, please visit www.sonomaecologycenter.org/donate and select "Sugarloaf."
