This is one of the closest bouldering areas to The Bay Area, located just 15 minutes East of Santa Rosa, which is roughly a 50 minute drive from Central Bay locations. I drive like a bat out of hell on the 101, and can get there in 55 minutes, even being nice on Adobe Canyon Road.
There is now a fee to park at the Goodspeed trailhead.
Sugarloaf park is named so because of the packaging that sugar used to be sold in the 1900's looked a lot like the rolling hills found in the park .
Camping is allowed in the park at the designated campground which is easily found just before the day use lot. Top roping the cliff behind the parking lot is also an option.
There is lots of development potential at Sugarloaf, and it is a sight of some recent new problems. Potential first ascentionists should try to keep their routes facing away from established hiking trails so as to not detract from other peoples experiences while in the park.
Always check the Sugarloaf Ridge State Park website for the latest access information.
