This is a very popular urban park. If you are going to hike/walk come on week day mornings and afternoons. After work and on weekends the trails are owned by mountain bikers. Next to NO mountain bikes at SPRING LAKE, cause most of the paths are paved. Weekend walks better at SPRING LAKE. Waterfalls and running water is very pleasant... More

This park has something for everyone! Whether you jog, hike, mountain bike, ride horses, it is great. Take a picnic and enjoy the lake.

This is a large hilly expanse just east of Santa Rosa, great for a hike or a trail run. The trails are well marked and navigable, so provided you can remember your route out it doesn't require major logistics to immerse yourself in California hill country. It's close to the 101 so can be a good diversion for a day... More

What a beautiful park. I have hiked this park many times and each time I admire the natural beauty. Hike to the lake for a beautiful site and even bring a picnic lunch (although you will have to carry it).

I started to hike the trail and wasn't sure if I should go to the lake because I didn't plan accordingly with my water situation. Once I got past the flat clearing, a hiker come down and said it's only around the bend. Well it was up the hill and not just around the bend. It was a good hike... More

This large park has miles of walking paths around the reservoir, dog friendly (on leash) and a fantastically wide assortment of people which makes the people watching really fun.

Yesterday my son took me on a hike through Trione-Annadel Park - it was terrific. I definitely enjoy the outdoors and I don't know how I've missed this treasure of a Sonoma County resource. I won't lie - there is some steep elevation changes that will challenge your physical condition but getting to the top is absolutely worth the efforts.... More

Great park that can be accessed from Spring Lake or further down the road. Watch out for the poison oak! Great hiking only minutes from town.

This is a beautiful park with lots of wonderful trails for all levels of hiking. Come with your bike if that's your interest. You can hike or bike to the top of Mt. Bennett if you like, which has wonderful views of Bennett Valley, and on a clear day, all,the way to Mt. Diablo. Bring water and food.
