I come here many times to walk. Best time is early in the morning, it's so beautiful to walk around the lake. There are many off the path hiking and mountain bike paths. Put your comfy walking shoes on and enjoy nature the nature around you. I usually park and walk in at Howarth park. Great place to take your... More

I have been riding in Annadel for over 30 years now, It never gets old, great single track, could be a little rough for beginners, dozens of great loops, a few to almost 30 miles if you want!!

Annadel State Park has hiking, biking, and horse back riding trails. They also have a paved path along Channel drive if you don't want to venture up the hills. The paved path is great for wheel chairs and there are picnic tables at the end where the parking lot is for cars and horse trailers. They also have porta potty's... More

Weather was absolutely perfect – like me – and it was the ideal setting for a nice walk with a charming young lady. First time here and October was really nice, I’d love to see it in the spring.

I feel so blessed to have discovered Annadel State park a few years ago because it is my #1 place for hiking and running that is close to home. It is on the other side of town but I do not mind one bit to drive there. It is very peaceful and beautiful, I am looking forward to when we... More

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 is pretty too. Recommend a morning walk as this can get hot in the afternoon.

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 challenging climb over rocky trails and a breakneck pace downhill - your chioce. Just be... More

as it is just a few blocks from my home. Thus I usually go hiking on weekdays up to Lake Ilsanjo and avoid the weekend. Some of the trails are wide enough that a bike can get past you, but on others you must step to the side. The bicyclists I have run into over the years have been cautious,... More

There are so many great trails in this park, and many of them are great mountain biking trails as well as hiking trails. Lovely views from some favorite trails, but you have to go discover which ones you like best -- there is so much to choose from. Wild turkeys galore! Some friends of mine adore lake Ilsanjo as their... More
