This hiking trail is located in a residential neighborhood with street parking. Only a 5 min drive from Healdsburg Plaza. That said, there are several better options in Healdsburg area such as Lake Sonoma and Foothill Regional Park. The narrow trails are dirt and gravel...More

You can easily take a short one hour stroll and enjoy the views of the Russian River meandering through the country side. The hike can easily be tamed even by a novice hiker.

Enjoyed hiking almost all the trails. Easy to get around and back out. The pond was a surprise, lovely lily pads and tranquility. Going to go back for a trail run tomorrow.

If you love hiking then this is the spot for you. The trails are tidy, the views exhilarating, and the crowd is minimal. Also, if you are into geocaching you might find a treasure or two!
