Bald Mountain Attack w/ Potluck

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Sugarloaf is another great Sonoma County Park loaded w/ views.  And I mean VIEWS!

    Just wait 'til you see what it looks like up there!

    This will be a 6 & 1/2 mile hike, w/ an altitude gain of roughly 1600'.

    This is a moderate to strenuous hike (depending on your condition).

    On past hikes here,  newbies said it was great, so don't be intimidated by the gain - it's not that steep, but oh are the views worth it!  We'll be taking a completely new route this time that will afford a more moderate route up plus an all trail decent (No fire road).

    If the grp wants we'll grab a bite and/or drink after the hike, which we typically do on this one.

    We'll have our typical vino/snack break along the trail to Bald Mountain, then we'll have lunch on the summit - the views from the top are amazing!  There's nothing like sharing a meal and vino at the top of a beautiful mountain!

    The Plan:

    Meet at the parking area just inside the park where we'll hit the trail and weave our way up to Bald Mountain.  As always there will be a vino/snack break, and later we'll have lunch on the summit.  There are interpretive signs on the summit to help ID the surrounding landmarks, which include:  Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, the steep hillsides of Jack London State Park, and the hillsides of Annadel State Park, Mt Wittenberg - the highest peak on Point Reyes (33 miles west); Snow Mountain (65 miles north); Mount Diablo (51 miles southeast); Mount Tamalpais (37 miles southwest); and the Golden Gate Bridge (44 miles southwest).

    This is a combined event w/ other Meetup grps, so it will be a good opportunity to meet some new people.

     

     

    Directions:

    GPS [masked],[masked]

    Meet at the corner of Hwy 12 and Adobe Canyon Rd.

    We will carpool/caravan in from there.

    At the park entry/ranger booth get an envelope to pay for parking.

    Come expecting a good time (would I lead you into anything else?), bring your good attitude, along w/ your willingness to laugh and encourage others.

    PLEASE NOTE:  Meet at 10:30 at Hwy 12 & Adobe Canyon Rd (Vineyards Inn restaurant is there).  We'll carpool and caravan up into the park from there.

     

     

    What To Bring:

    Vino! (and cups)

    Good Hiking Boots/shoes

    Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent

    2 liters of cold water (1/2 fill and refrigerate, then top w/ ice in the a.m.)

    Vino/Snacks for our pre-lunch break during the hike

    Lunch ~ Food and more food to share (dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, deserts - be creative!)

    Drinks, drinks, drinks!

    If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect - so be prepared for fun!

    $5 Fun fee - thx!

    Your sense of humour is an absolute must!
