Description

Do you enjoy a slow walk in a valley, breezes, wildflowers, the sounds of songbirds, the taste of a Douglas Fir needle or a California Bay leaf, the aroma of Tarweed, or watching wild turkeys and California Quail hunt for seeds and insects in the grass? Join California Certified Naturalist Judy Withee and other Sugarloaf docents for this series of meandering explorations. 

Each month (weather permitting), we will explore one or two of our accessible trails-- the Creekside Nature Trail and the Meadow Trail. Suitable for all levels and a range of mobility, these Sunday afternoon adventures will accommodate people using walkers or wheelchairs, parents with babies in strollers, young children, as well as those who just enjoy slow walks in nature that stimulate the five senses.

Our August program will focus on the geology of the park. Meet at the main parking lot, about ¼ mile past the entrance kiosk. We will travel about 0.45 miles along the Creekside Nature Trail. There will be frequent stops and opportunities for conversation, photography, nature journaling, wildlife viewing, resting, etc., so bring your nature journal, camera, or binoculars, if you have them.

Tickets are $10-$5 sliding scale for general audiences, and free for children under 12. Wear comfortable shoes, a hat, sun protection, bring at least a quart of water and if desired, a snack.

Ease of access: There is one van-designated accessible parking spot at the main parking lot, as well as an accessible pit toilet. The White Barn additionally has one accessible porta-potty. From the main parking lot to the White Barn, Creekside Trail is an ADA-compliant trail.
