We spend a day, from 11 am to 4 pm in the park, weather was perfect. Hiking trails are well maintained, although most are shared with bikers. The trails are easy, you walk through forests, meadows. Redwoods, oak trees, birds singing, wild flowers, turkeys. There aren't any super attractions, but overall very pleasant nature walking.

Santa Rosa may be unique in the country with a City park (Howarth Park) bordering a County park leading to a State Park (Annadel). You can walk out of a restaurant or movie theatre into a park and wander for miles seeing wildlife a a range of flora.

Lots of trails, lots of area to explore and get lost in. Great biking, running or walking trails. Swim Lagoon is fun!

Annadel state park has many different trails for mountain biking most or technical and very rocky. Absolute a cool ride to do and many thrills on the rocky trails. But be warned when you are a beginner this trail might be a bit difficult. Park near Spring lake if you want to avoid some of the real rocky trails. A... More

Loved this park and want to mountain bike in it. I haven't done much hiking in Sonoma so I don't know how it compares, but I really liked it. Some of the trails we were on involved mountain bikes, so if it bothers you to have to dodge a mountain bike, be careful about what trail you pick. I didn't... More

Great place to go out with the kids and explore. There is a lot of trails, and ones easier for families with little ones,

Great hiking trials lead you through old forests of bay and oak trees to old meadows and a lake. Bring your own water. The terrain is hilly and provides some great views from higher locations.

I used to Mt. Bike up here, and it is a Mecca for that. But I recently bought some hardy trail running shoes and have been challenging myself by running up there. There is plenty of parking at the base. I'm yet to find any kind of water stations so make sure you stock up before hand. Most of the... More

This is a great park, tucked in a very accessible location in Santa Rosa. Although there is a parking fee inside the park, there is plenty of parking just outside. There are many trails which are shared by runners, mountain bikers and hikers. You do need to be alert on the trail given that they are shared (almost equally by... More

Annadel is everything you want in a park. Great hiking, mountain biking, and even open to horseback riding. The trails range from easy to moderately difficult. I recommend the Spring Creek trail which heads up lake Ilsanjo (which some folks swim in) and then come back the same way you came or pick a different trail. The beauty of the... More
