Part of the park is still closed due to fire damage but it remains my favorite place for trail runs. Right in the middle of Santa Rosa you can find wilderness!

So, where would you find a Lake in the middle of a city, with a swimming lagoon of spring water? The dog friendly park is a special place in today's hectic, wugi wugi world.

The trails are rough as they're covered in rocks that now dominate the area. They need a little TLC but Ca. State Parks don't seem to take the same pride in their parks like Oregon. Still a great place to go but beware of obstacles....More
