Beautiful hike with lots of variety. About half was shaded, the other half exposed. Lots of wildlife including flogs and deer.

This trail is just down the street from my house. At this writing the trail is open an cleared but there is a great deal of evidence of the October wildfires. The park suffered a great deal of burn but is open and clear.
The level is probably difficult with large rocks and roots in some places. Lots of hikers, mountain bikes and runners but it’s never too crowded.

Beautiful trail, especially a few days after the rain with a strong stream in the creek. Other than a short stretch that was too steep for me to run up or down, moderate trail. Free parking on the street near trail head.

I noticed lots of 4+ star ratings on this trail but 3 stars on sugarloaf vista, just a few miles away. They aren’t really even comparable from a views and terrain diversity perspective. maybe it’s the mountain biker preference for this trail.

It is a beautiful hike, but many bikes on the main trail. we got lost for a little bit because the rain has washed away some mud, and plants are thick. overall, it is a fun hike

This trail should be rated moderate, at best. There are not a lot of steep climbs. It is a bit long if you’re not used to hiking 6 miles.

Great quick family hike! Took about 2 hours round trip with 3 Kids(13,12,10). Hit most of the goals on my Fitbit in 2 hours. Not bad!

Very easy trail with some great views along the way.

My go to route for an efficient, fun 5 miler. Always fun bombing down rough-go and getting in some good flat around the lake. Add 2 extra miles by taking a right at Orchard and coming back on Cobblestone to meet up with Rough-Go.

There’s a nice series of trails, some challenging. It’s picturesque though also crowded with many people on the trails which are narrow and often shared by mountain bikes whizzing by which definitely disrupts what could be a calm scenic vibe.

Wonderful easy trail!

Nice variety of not too steep and level. During winter small brook to cross.

This review is outdated since I did this hike before the fire- not sure its condition now. Beautiful, particularly at dusk.

Very nice lightly moderate trail. Not many birds, but lots of bikes on this Saturday, but all well trained in trail etiquette. Very relaxing.

I prefer this route in reverse. One of the best routes (trail running) at Annadel SP. Marsh is challenging but very run-able and flying down South Burma is a real treat, with very different plant life at a higher elevation. The trail in the South Burma section is some of the most pristine single track in the park. Start at John Beckmeyer Trail on Parktrail Dr. for easy access.

Always a good time coming down Spring Creek - look out for turkeys! Access the trail from Stonehedge Dr. as well, instead of Spring Lake.

Either direction you run this route, you are going to have a great time. Rough-Go is steeper going up than Canyon and more technical/single track trail. I would recommend coming down Spring Creek Trail as an alternative - that trail is very shaded and not as rocky as Rough-Go if you are looking for a smoother descent. Parking on the road at Parkridge Dr. is easy and plentiful, definitely the best way to access Annadel from the Santa Rosa side. The other access point is to park at Stonehedge Dr. just north of Parktrail Dr. Enjoy!

Really gorgeous trail. Pretty secluded from other people.

Free parking on the road outside with a path leading directly to the trail head. We did rough go to the lake and took spring creek trail back for a nice loop. Great hike! Recommend hiking shoes. Would rate as moderate.

I have a lot left to explore in Anadel, but this was my favorite trail so far. We went on a Sunday in the summer but only encountered two people on the trail. There's a nice moderate climb at the beginning of the hike but not too taxing. Lovely views and lots of shade through the woods. At the end of the loop is a beautiful meadow with a picnic bench great for a lunch stop. Would definitely do it again for a relaxing evening hike.

Great views coming back down the canyon trail!

Nice trail, relatively easy, but will give you a nice workout if you're moving along.

Great for an afternoon meander, usually pretty nice weather

Great hike.

The various forests are just beautiful. You get a little bit of everything. A little climb at the beginning but pretty even throughout. Lots of flowers and herbs and things to see. Love it!! If you continue on Pig Flat to Schultz which leads to the road, then you can do a loop which is just under 7 miles. 1 mile of road....

Great hike. Lots of varied landscapes to enjoy. Mind the bikers if using Canyon. Not as many on Spring Creek.
