Great Hike with beautiful views! It was 100 degrees so should have started a little earlier but was able to shorten the loop! Plenty of spots for swimming too!

We didn’t go to the end, but this was a really nice trail. The trail was shady for the majority of our hike. We have done several hikes at Lake Sonoma and they are well maintained and marked. The creek was mostly dried up, but there was enough for the dog to get a drink and for both of us to get a little splash to cool off. Other than hearing the boats and their blasting music, we didn’t run into anyone. We were able to access the lake for the dog to swim. This was moderate because of elevation changes, but the trail was easy to travel on. Only bummer was the last mile back was uphill.

I liked this hike. Be sure that you bring enough water with you, especially on a hot day, as you'll encounter several sections of the trail exposed to full sunlight. You may also want to go for a swim in the lake afterwards. Park your car on Rockpile Rd at the Boat Launch parking place and walk down the stairs near the bridge to the lake.

RT was 4.6 miles and took about 1 hour and 50 minutes for two intermediate level hikers. My Apple Watch clocked 850 ft elevation gain. Beautiful scenery and we saw wild boars! Love being able to get close to the lake and the manzanitas are stunning. It was hot out but fairly shady for a late afternoon loop.

We liked going counterclock once at 1/2 Canoe.. that is gradual downhill and short steep uphill to Bummer Peak. Picnic tables under oak trees about 2/3 way up is a great rest stop

The trail was completely empty on a Friday afternoon in June. The trail is overgrown in a few spots so would definitely wear thick socks! Really great ending at the beach. Perfect for a picnic!!

Well marked, water access (didn’t see trail to water), gradual descent one direction, shorter steeper ascent going back. Choose either direction. We left fire road to North Ridge Trail for last mile or so.

I really enjoyed this trail. Some nice shade, but overall I think it would be too hot for afternoon hike in midsummer. Not crowded and has some great views. I saw one bobcat :)

Great trail! We saw a small red bellied snake, red tail hawk hunting in the large fields, stopped at the lake for a dip and watched a huge fish breach the water. Lots of scat and animal prints on the trail. We hiked it mid April and the flowers were blossoming and bright. The trail ends with a pretty big up hill hike with no shade. Bring a fair amount of water and sunscreen. I got crispy.

HikingFeeWashed out

Beautiful views, trees, lake, and birds, Horses have put some big holes in the mud, there is just room to step around. My Garmin measured 5.1 miles, so did AllTrails, as did my wife’s Apple watch. However the ascent is about 1200 feet. Recommend it.

FeeNo shade

I walked this trail on a warm sunny day in January - great hike! Here are a couple of tips: - If you use the car park at the beginning of No Name Trail (which is the place the GPS will map you to) there is a $5 parking fee. Bring your Sonoma County Parks Pass! -No matter if you take this trail clockwise or counter clockwise there will be a portion of the trail that involves a lot of uphill walking so be prepared for that. -Not a lot of shade. I would NOT recommend hiking this trail in the middle of summer. Go in the cooler months instead.

It was a little muddy in spots but otherwise the trails in good shape. The biggest bummer was the number of ticks. I pulled 16 from my little dog, three of them embedded.

Hiking

Nice trail well established but maybe more light-moderately traffic from how well worn it is. Best time to go is definitely off season ideal when a bit rainy if you want it to yourself. Easier to hike counterclockwise. Lots of offshoots on first mile so definitely helpful to have AllTrails mapping to keep you on the route!

Takes 30 min to jog up with a few breaks along the way. Lots of poo, watch your step. Nice view at the top and pretty view of the bridge toward the end of the loop

Pretty dry in early October, beautiful views but would come back when it's not so hot and dry. We brought our dog and she made it through the whole thing. There was a lot of hog poop on the trail.

We did this and added on the 1.2 mile boar scat trail for about 6 miles total. Did the look counter clockwise. Strenuous hill action which we were all feeling the next day. Great views and scenery throughout above the lake. Highly recommended.

Nice trail but have to rely on the map in the App to make sure not to step onto another trail that goes further. Also, not a quiet hike. Too many boats nearby

Great Trail! 25% shade. At mile 2.8 go right instead of left and you can fill up on water by the picnic tables. At mile 5.4 you can go down the road and go swimming! Great work out. Saw some deer.
