May and September are Shuttle Months!

What is the ‘Sugar Shuttle’?

The ‘Sugar Shuttle’ is a rideshare van which allows experienced hikers to hike one-way on some of the Bay Areas most beautiful landscapes between one of Sonoma County’s State Parks and one of its Regional Parks—and avoid making time-consuming transportation arrangements with friends and family.

How it works
Every half hour or hour (depending on the route) our Shuttle will leave from either one of the parking lots at the trailhead. Make a reservation and then ride to the other end of the trail, or hike and ride back. Riding first and hiking back to your car is the easiest way – no worries about how long you take to finish your adventure.

There are 3 routes–only one of which operates each weekend. Click the route tabs below to see each weekend’s schedule.  

The Sugar Shuttle is free, but we do ask for a donation.

NOTE: the ‘Sugar Shuttle’ typically operates only on the 2nd weekend each month. However, May 2020 and September 2020 are SHUTTLE MONTHS—with service each weekend day all month long!
