Limited in length but not in beauty nor versatility in terrain. It’s outlined somewhat by private housing and vineyards so if you’re looking for a complete escape this isn’t it... but the views of Sonoma County or gorgeous and abundant, there are a couple small ponds to travel around, and plenty of benches along the way. There’s a lot of shade so keep that in mind!

Great hike with beautiful views and lots of nice up and down for a moderate walk. Parking lot is $7 or plenty of street parking free. Sneakers or hiking shoes both fine for this terrain. Would be nice to come back for a trail run too.

Came across this little gem while on a business trip with my man. He was busy, I wanted to hike and ended up here. Beautiful day!! Beautiful park!! Was a short loop at under 3 miles, so did a loop one way then the other
Such a pleasant surprise tucked into this town , loved it !

The trails start off with a gradual to moderate incline. Lots of switchbacks, mostly oaks and scrub brush. Some great views of vineyards.

Love this park. Only reason for 4 stars is it can get very crowded.

This is one of my favorite spots to go. This is the best trail in the park in my opinion. You see three lakes and you are among the oak trees. Sometimes it’s busy with lots of people and bikes and dogs even horses. There are plenty of stopping areas if you want to have a snack or just rest. Benches or picnic tables are scattered around the park. This trail is very versatile, you can go for a quick run or take your time and enjoy nature.

"Lake" is a bit of a stretch. It's blistering hot in the summer, so don't go until it's cooled off. But it has quite a view, and it's a very serene walk.

This is great for families, or those who want a hike close to town. I was surprised at the remote feel of the park, despite its entrance being in the middle of town. Excellent trails for kids, dogs, and horses.

Easy and beautiful trail. I enjoy it most towards sunset in early summer. The initial climb to Vista Point is steep with loose rocks. I usually prefer using the other side of Vista Point Trail if I'm running.

Only 3 minutes drive from the house. Fun to walk with the kiddo and a great place to take kids fishing! Can get crowed though.
