Posted on September 14, 2021 by Sonoma Valley Sun

It’s a bit of a walk to get there, but the views from atop Bald Mountain, as the sun sets and the moon rises over the Sonoma Valley, are spectacular.

Bring a flashlight and a sense of wonder as you explore Sugarloaf Ridge State Park after dark.

This hike begins at the White Barn and heads up either to Bald Mountain or to the viewpoint on Vista Trail, to see the moon rise over the Mayacamas and the sun set over Sonoma Valley.

The Vista Trail route is a moderate-to-strenuous 4-mile hike with 700ft of elevation and begins at 6pm.

The alternate route, via Grey Pine is strenuouscovering 6.5 miles with 1,500+ of vertical with some steep sections. The final route will be decided by the hike leader. It leaves the White Barn parking lot at 5pm. This route is not recommended for minors under 12.

Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for minors plus a $10 parking fee. Be at the meeting location at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the hike for a prompt departure. Bring water, snacks, and extra layers for the evening. Presented by the Sonoma Ecology Center.
