I have spent hundreds of hours and miles running the many beautiful trails on Annadel. The terrain can be as mild or as challenging as you want to make it and it is quite easy to put together a 15 or 20 mile route without doing any duplicate trails. Views from the top are spectacular. During the spring you will... More

Whether you are on outdoors person or not, this place is good for all.. There are different trails that circle the lakes and or dam.... Fishing spots that are relaxing and not packed with others... Or even for photography... Great backdrops..

Annadel is well-known by locals, but most visiting town don't think of stopping by. It is my favorite part of Santa Rosa and offers more than 30 miles of trails for running, mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking. There are flat areas as well as single track trails with rolling elevation. Definitely make it part of your trip!

This is a really nice hike. I wouldn't recommend it for young kids (5 and under), this biggest reason being that the mountain bikers were fairly rude. Out of the dozen or so that practically ran us over, only one announced their impending arrival.

My daughter went to SSU and has spoken of AnnaDel State Park for years. I was finally able to visit. Think a blend of covered, tree lined trails and then open, Live Oak spaces. We hit the Lake and the dam and loved it, though the geese are a bit aggressive. It's a beautiful place. Check out the nature center... More

Great place to walk, hike, bike ride, horseback ride. Going down Channel drive you walk on paved road that goes from Spring Lake to Oakmont through Wild Oak. The paths up the mountains are great for the mountain bikers, runners, hikers and horses. A 5,000 acre park that is in the middle of Santa Rosa - who knew!

Hike, bike, walk, or just enjoy sitting and lunching in a beautiful space. Close to Howard Park and spring lake which has camping. There are peddle boats, fishing and swimming at spring lake just next spot over from !

Visiting from out of town & like to check out hiking trails & this is a beautiful place to explore. Wish I would have downloaded a trail map but I ended up hiking to Spring Lake and back on accident.

Annabel is a big park with several entrances and a wide variety of hikes. It's easy to do a 5 to 7 mile loop here. Most hikes skirt the Lisanjo lake at some point and this lake always makes a beatiful vista
