Located in the heart of Santa Rosa, this park offers some of the most challenging mountain biking around. Plus, the views from the top are amazing. If you're hiking, keep a watchful eye for mountain bikers charging down trails at 30 mph.

Great hiking park. This park is a hub of weekend activity with folks from Santa Rosa hiking, horsing and mountain biking into the park. Very limited facilities, bring your own water and tp. Really like the Spring Creek Trail into the park and Lake Ilsanjo...More

Stay off the roads here, just look out for the cranky horsewomen - do NOT make the mistake of missing a no bikes sign. Single and doubletrack trails, varied terrain and skills. A slow aerobic climb for 30-45 min and a leisurely downhill, or a...More

We hiked the trails in this park and found them both well-maintained and the woods quite protected and interesting. We saw and heard wild turkeys, but the highlight was a close view of a Pileated Woodpecker tearing apart a fallen rotted log to get at...More

Aren't dogs forbidden on 90% of the trails at Annadel because it's a state park?? If the ranger catches you on any of the trails at Annadel I believe it is a $400.00 fine. Maybe Howarth is a safer bet. Nearby Hood Mountain is dog friendly though.
