Please join Team Sugarloaf and Bill and Dave Hikes as they partner on an informative hike within the extreme northern part of Hood Mtn Regional Park and the McCormick addition of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. This moderately strenuous 6.5 mile hike, with 1000 ft of elevation gain, will highlight both Homestead Meadow near the Santa Rosa Creek crossing and the former Spaulding property now a part of Hood Mtn Regional Park. Plan to gather at the Los Alamos Rd parking lot at 9:45 for a prompt 10:00 start. This lot is at the end of Los Alamos Rd approximately 4.5 miles north of Hwy 12. Please bring a lunch, liquids, appropriate weather clothing, and plan on a shallow water crossing of the Santa Rosa Creek. The hike is free, but a Regional Park entrance fee of $7 will apply. For questions, please contact Dave Chalk at 539-8847, Bill Myers at 833-4128, or check out billandavehikes.com or sugarloafpark.org.
