This is a great place to do a hike while in Sonoma area. Only 20-30 minutes from Sonoma. Beautiful area with great trails. We got up early and hiked up at sunrise. (Appx 7:30am) Sun was hitting the mountain tops and there was some great fog in the canyons. We like to get some strenuous hiking and there was definitely... More

We stayed in Kenwood and had no idea about this place until our last day. We drove into the park and learned that there were 25 miles of hiking trails and waterfalls. It is absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time to spend here.

A wonderful place with a spectacular view (if there are not clouds) & some cool hiking trails!!! Certainly a place to visit. Cool drive up along a babbling creek with some unique homes.

A gorgeous hike to Gunsling Point where you can see both Sonoma and Napa Valley on a clear day. Allow plenty of time and lots of water!

Tons of hiking trails to choose from! There is a daily parking fee of $8 per car but it's worth it. Beautiful views and easy to moderate hikes.

Get out there quickly as the Canyon Trail waterfall is still flowing strong fed by all the water from the recent rains. We timed it perfectly during a recent strong downpour and it was an absolutely delight to watch the water rush down and hear the deafening noise after all these years of drought in California. It is an easy... More

Sugarloaf Ridge State Park is a Sonoma Valley hidden gem. Just driving up into the park will take you out of the hustle-bustle of everyday life. They have hiking trails of all types from hidden waterfalls to mountaintop views to the bay. Spend a night looking at the stars at the observatory or camp in the campground. You can even... More

Love this place--30 min east of Santa Rosa. Everything from family friendly campground, easy of stimulating hikes/mountain biking. A real observatory that is open to the public for night viewing a few times a month. An ingenious feature--within its grounds is a replica of our Solar System--built to scale. As you hike, you learn just how far apart we are,... More

Want to let everyone know if you have a budding mt bike rider, the trails in this park are great. We started at the observatory parking lot. Good mix of packed gravel roads and some challenging creek crossings make this a great place to beginning mt bike ride (wear wool socks since shoes got soaked). My adventurous 6 year old... More

Hiked Bald Mountain (I think the hike was called the big loop) and enjoyed every second. It's $8 to park, but there are helpers everywhere to assist with questions as everyone is super helpful. Trails are well marked and well kept, we were really impressed. Bald mountain is approx 2600 feet altitude gain in about 3 miles (in a clockwise... More
