Sugarloaf Honors Oakmont and Kenwood
Sugarloaf Ridge State Park is offering Free Admission to the Park for All who live in Oakmont or Kenwood.from Monday, May 13 through Friday, May, 17
Sugarloaf wants to thank our neighbors for all they do for the park. Most of our volunteers come from right here in the area. We also know that many who live in the area have not been to the park before or in a long time. So this week is a “thank you” for some and a “welcome” to others. While Sugarloaf has some of the areas most challenging hiking, it also encompasses many miles of flat or even wheelchair accessible trails that offer views and amazing wildflowers. So come on up, and learn more about the park either on an organized hike or from our volunteers.
If you are an Oakmont resident, your Oakmont pass is all you need for entry (or just leave on your dash). Kenwood residents, bring an ID or something to show you live in Kenwood. Mail or DL with the address.
The visitor center will be open from 10-3 each day for the week to answer questions give hike and park advice.
