We hiked in from a secluded residential area. There were lots of mountain bikers on the trail but everyone was friendly and polite. The terrain is steep but there is a nice variety of mountain views, valleys, and meadows to hike through. The only bad things is that there was poison oak everywhere. You really need to stay on the trail and be watchful.

I have hiked all the trails in Annadel and I frequently return. What is really awsome is to start on the Hwy 12 side (past Oakmont) and exit in Bennett Valley. It takes awhile and is steep but you get the total experience. Things to think about include steep slope of all trails leading to Lake Ilsanjo and beware of mountain bikers trying to pass you from behind. It can be dangerous for you and more so for them.

Annadel offers a great place to hike, for all levels of hikers. Take an enjoyable stroll around Spring Lake, Lake Ralphine, or Lake Ilsanjo. And, it is right at the edge of Santa Rosa City, so you do not have to drive far for this nature fix.

I hiked with a family group of 6 people, from the horse parking lot up Richardson trail to the lake. This park has wonderful scenery of rolling grassy hills, wildflowers, and oak woodland. There's a fun rope swing at the lake, along with a picnic table. Lots of bikers on the trail, and they were all polite to us hikers. Watch out for the poison oak - it's everywhere! Please please pay the entrance fee - most people don't, and the park deserves to be cared for.

awesome hiking, biking trails. Lots of oaks. Well used by locals, but you don't feel run over by people.
