About the event

We will meet at the Berger parking lot at 9:00 AM. From there we will make the short drive to Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. The parking fee is $8/day for seniors (62 and up) or $10 regular per car unless you have a state park pass. We will park in the main lot and walk on the Creekside trail to the white barn and begin the gravel Meadow trail just past the Robert Ferguson Observatory. At the first trail junction we will take Grey Pine for a short walk to Vista Trail. All of the uphill portion of the hike is on Vista Trail, and some is on fairly steep stairs. The lower portion of Vista has quite a bit of shade. We will pass the Headwaters trail junction and continue on the open, sunniest portion of Vista with lovely mountain and city views on a clear day. Vista ends at the Bald Mountain trail and the fairly gradual downhill portion of the hike commences here. The views continue as well. At the next junction we will take Lower Bald Mountain trail back and will wind through a large stand of oaks and then through the sunny meadow back to the parking lot. Bring sun protection and water, and poles if desired. A restroom is located in the main parking lot.

Stats: 4 miles, 850 elevation
