Experience Sugarloaf Ridge State Park



Family Hike, Feb. 17, 10 a.m.-noon
Come to the park for a peaceful hike through the woods. Join a knowledgeable docent on this fun family hike that is appropriate for all ages. During this two-mile hike with 400-foot elevation gain, you will learn about Sugarloaf Park, its plants, animals and history. Weather permitting, the hike will begin and end at the visitor center. This is a free event and RSVP is not needed but parking fees do apply.
Yoga Hike, Feb. 22, 10 a.m.
Enjoy your yoga experience in the beautiful setting of the park. Susan Topf’s Yoga Hike balances a mix of hiking and gentle yoga postures, breath work and guided meditation. All levels and ages welcome. The trail varies on weather conditions and group interest, but typically follows 2-3 miles of varied terrain. Meet at the visitor center unless otherwise noted in confirmation email prior to the hike. Wear weather appropriate clothing to feel comfortable being in a natural setting and water (as needed). No mat necessary. Register by going to www.sugarloafpark.org.
Observatory open for viewing, Feb. 22, 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The Robert Ferguson Observatory will have solar viewing starting at 11 a.m. Come safely look at the sun (and listen, too).

A Star Party starts at 7 p.m. Presentations on astronomical topics are given in the classroom throughout the course of the evening. Starting at dusk, the observatory’s three main telescopes are open for your viewing. Docents set up additional telescopes in front of the building. Friendly and knowledgeable docents are available to answer your questions.

For more information about observatory activities, go to www.rfo.org.
Trail Restoration, Feb. 22, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Work includes bridge and step construction, installing signs, clearing, lifting, carrying and hiking. Bring gloves, hat and water that you can carry hands-free (i.e., bring a backpack). Wear long pants, boots or sturdy shoes and sunscreen. Poison oak is present, so long sleeves are suggested. There will be tools and trained crew leaders with tasks for all. Those under 18 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Tools, food and beverages provided.

For sign-up information, go to www.sugarloafpark.org.
