I live behind Annadel State Park and it truly deserves its name, the jewel of Sonoma County. Annadel is really three parks connected: a city park (Howarth), a county park (Spring Lake) and a State Park (Annadel). Howarth Park and Lake Ralphine has the train...More

A fabulous park where you can hike, bike ride, or ride horses, all within 2 miles of downtown Santa Rosa. You can take hikes that are short or many miles long.

Okay, I'm not objective. We live across the street. Many ways to enter the park for FREE. Three parks, Annadel State Park, Spring Lake, Sonoma County Park, and Howarth, Santa Rosa city park are all linked together. Peaceful.
