Hike with Bill and Dave in Sonoma County Parks


Hike with Bill and Dave in Sonoma County Parks

Join Bill & Dave Hikes on Saturday, December 3, at Jack London State Historic Park as we climb up to the Sonoma Ridge Trail and explore the newly opened East Slope extension to this wonderful trail. Plan on arriving at the upper parking lot by 9:45 AM for a prompt 10 AM departure and note that there is a $10 parking fee.  Bring a lunch with lots to drink and wear clothing appropriate for the weather, rain or shine. This is a  strenuous 12 mile hike with an elevation gain of almost 2000 feet. 

Some of you participated last month in an impromptu contest about the weight of Scott Chesnut’s pack. Guesses varied from 25 to 45 pounds. After weighing it, he told us that the actual weight was 28 pounds.

Bill & Dave Hikes are sponsored by Sonoma County Regional Parks, the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council, California State Parks, Jack London Park Partners, Team Sugarloaf, and the Valley of the Moon Natural History Association. For more information, contact me at 833-6288, Dave at 539-8847, and visit our web site, which includes our future hiking dates through May.  Dave and I have been leading free monthly hikes in Sonoma County for over 16 years.
