Fourth of July fireworks hike Sugarloaf State Park

Monday July 4th - 6:45pm

Join Bill & Dave Hikes and Team Sugarloaf this July 4th for the Annual Fireworks Hike & Fundraiser to support Sugarloaf Ridge State Park.

Celebrate Independence Day by climbing one of the tallest mountains in Sonoma Valley – a spectacular vantage point to view as many as 20 different fireworks displays from throughout the Bay Area. Upon arrival at the top, enjoy a mountaintop reception, with fine wine, beer, snacks and sweets, amid the beautiful sights of the many fireworks displays that span the Bay Area. This special July 4th fundraising hike is by reservation only and sells out every year, so reserve your space now. Tickets are available at

Price is $50, and 100 percent of the proceeds support Team Sugarloaf’s operation and maintenance of Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. Kids 12-17 are $10. Not recommended for children under 12. The total distance is 6.5 miles round-trip and the elevation gain is 1,500 feet. Plan to arrive at the group campsite (near the Observatory) by 6:45 p.m. Hike begins at 7 p.m. Expect much cooler temperatures at the top of the mountain. Bring a headlamp or flashlight; binoculars are a useful option. Hikers will return to the parking lot at approximately 11 p.m.

Bill & Dave Hikes are sponsored by Sonoma County Regional Parks, California State Parks, Jack London Park Partners, Team Sugarloaf, and the Valley of the Moon Natural History Association.
