Headwaters to Headwaters: A Mayacama's Hike Extravaganza
Join Bill & Dave Hikes for a very rare opportunity to hike from Hood Mountain Regional Park to Sugarloaf Ridge State Park via the historic McCormick Ranch section of Sugarloaf. This event will be a grand tour of the Mayacamas Mountains in the northern half of Sonoma Valley and will pass close to the headwaters of Santa Rosa and Sonoma Creeks. The Perry family has generously given permission to hike through their property, allowing our adventure to go the back way along the Napa/Sonoma county line.  The route will take participants through some of the wildest and most beautiful sections of Sonoma County filled with massive trees and lovely wildflowers. The terrain also has some amazing history especially of the McCormick and Hurd families. At the end of the 11-mile hike, join your fellow adventurers for a delicious barbecue meal at the Sugarloaf day use picnic area, beer and wine included.

Participants should arrive at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park no later than 8:45 am, and shuttle buses will leave at 9 AM to the Los Alamos parking lot of Hood Mountain Regional Park. From there, hikers will follow the Hood Mountain Trail down to Homestead Meadow and then cross into the McCormick addition of Sugarloaf. We will work our way up Quercus Trail, Grandmother Oak Trail, overlook the former Spaulding property, and have a brief stop at Red Hill. Continuing up Maple Glen Trail, our group with permission from Jim Perry, will hike southeast along the county line and enjoy lunch at the top of "hill 2530" (named for its elevation). We will enter Sugarloaf and take a break at the Red Barn where snacks and cold drinks will be provided by Team Sugarloaf. The group will then proceed up to Bald Mountain and finally work its way back down to the day use area at Sugarloaf for a barbecue dinner. The route covers approximately 11 miles with elevation gain of about 2800 ft. We expect to arrive at the barbecue about 4:30 PM.  

Tickets include transportation, snacks, drinks, and BBQ.

Please bring a lunch, water and be prepared to walk 11 miles over the steep and sometimes rough terrain, stream crossing of minimal depth. Please dress appropriately for the weather.

Q&A

Question: Sorry if this is a duplicate, but I didn't get any confirmation when I sent it before. Would it be possible to pay for an extra person at the barbecue dinner? I would be happy to pay the full price, even though she wouldn't be on the hike.
Answer: Absolutely!
