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

The place is loaded with trails, and roads that loop and intersect all through the park. It's beautiful with its natural oaks, redwoods, and California natives. Summer can be fairly warm in the mid summer afternoons.

Went to the Spring Lake parking lot, but found out we could park for free in the neighborhoods. So did that. Walked up the trail - it was a little confusing, but seems like all the trails end up toward the top by Lake Izanjo. Saw a doe and fawn on the way up. The day was beautiful and the... More

We brought our mountain bikes to Annadel SP, consulted with the volunteer in the ranger office and did the easiest route we could find: Channel to Richardson to Canyon. We are very proud that we were able to do the 4 miles up to Lake Ilsanjo--about a 700' elevation gain amongst Douglas-fir, bay and redwood trees. The grade was about... More

This is a beautiful and big park in the Valley of the Moon in Sonoma County. It is a moderately challenging hike with many uphills but through the trees and very relaxing...if you hike to the top you can see across the valley and hike down to a small lake. This park is also horse and moutain bike friendly!

This park is very large you can bring your horse or hike. Very pretty countryside. Location is convenient also.

Excellent off-road mountain biking, running, hiking, horseback riding, swimming (off-road swimming?), picnicking in beautiful woods and awesome views. 6000 acres of this... The trails have a variety of difficulty - no rock climbing - but some trails are really rugged (and downright dangerous on a bike, horse, or running shoes). Bring water!!!

Really liked my short walk to the lake from the upper parking lot - just make sure you pay the fee at the ranger station because there is no pay station at the upper lot! If you're hiking, walk up the "Steve's S Trail." A beautiful single track trail that is especially enjoyable in the morning after the rain when... More
