This is the trail for the full family... great hilly views, and well kept trails that make it easier even for a toddler to traverse about. Lots of people sharing the park. Facilities include small pond, playground, restrooms and parking. Not challenging at all. Great for a couple hours of mild exercise with beautiful land around you.

Some uphill trails are difficult. The scenery and area are beautiful.

Ridge-Panorama trail
Gradual incline going up on paved Ridge Trail. Coming down Panorama Trail terrible idea. Extremely steep. I am never doing that again.

Have been going for years out here. Just watch for ticks. People are supposed to have their dogs on leash and sadly some don't and do not pick up after their pets. Will find dog bags along side the trails. All of the trails are fairly easy but the one right out of the parking lot on the "paying" side- killer if you are not into quick elevations. Restrooms are always clean. Weekdays are perfect time to head out and even try your luck fishing at the pond with the kiddos.

A really beautiful and easy place to go if you want to do more than just a basic walk, but aren't up to a full blown hike. Lots of little trails branch off making it easily modified to be shorter or longer. It also is a great place for a picnic lunch as it has many benches with beautiful views

We hike around here at least once a week. It's easy enough for the kids and offers some lovely views of Petaluma!

For a backyard neighborhood park it's a gem.
