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

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 some tasty insects or worms. He was majestic, the size of a crow!

lots of great trails there use to be a problem with bike folks and horse folks sharing the same trail but that is working its self out. This park is a hidden gem in Sonoma County

Wide open spaces, lots of places to start from and it's a beautiful hike/walk. Up at the top is Lake.

The entire mountain top is a park - biking, hiking and even swimming are possible here.. the nature is intact, with lots of birds, and butterflies...

Went for a long run in this park. Miles, miles and more miles of trails. too ad they do not allow dogs. And the really stupid thing is they allow horses. Go figure!

Lakes, forest, meadows, trails for bikes, horses and people to roam the hills and small mountains right in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County California. Park rangers for assistance and direct connections to the city park and restaurants

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.
