Description

What is a habitat? Join Certified CA Naturalists Judy Armstrong and Marie Kay Hansen through the featured habitat. As you hike along the Meadow Trail, you'll learn about simple grasslands (as well as more biodiverse grasslands that we call meadows), about the geological features that make it a meadow, and about the plants and animals that thrive in the park's largest meadow at the end of Adobe Canyon Rd. There will be stops for bird-watching and for wildflower viewing. If you like bring binoculars or materials for nature journaling. 

This hike is the second in our four-part ‘Habitats of Sugarloaf’ hike series. Other hikes will explore redwood forest habitat and oak woodlands. Past hikes have explored chaparral habitat.

Meet at the White Barn parking lot. Tickets are $10-$15 sliding scale for general admission, $5 for youth (12-17 year olds), students, Sugarloaf members, Sugarloaf volunteers, and free for children under 12. Wear layers, appropriate footwear for muddy and/or slippery trails, bring at least a quart of water, sun protection, and if desired, a snack. Heavy rain cancels. Parking fees apply.

Ease of access: The White Barn parking area has one van-accessible designated parking spot and one accessible porta-potty. There is a flat, paved 1/4-mile road from the parking area to the Meadow trailhead. Meadow Trail is an unpaved fire road with a typical slope of 5%, although not ADA-compliant. In the dry season, it is passable by stroller or wheelchair with off-road capability tires up to the bridge, about 0.65 miles in.
