Agree with the review below that total length is 8 miles from parking lot ($10). Beautiful mostly shaded trail with wide open at the top and nice views. Rec hiking shoes. If you're looking for a good lunch spot after, Benzinger Winery is just down the road and allows your to bring your own picnic!

Overall nice trail and mostly shaded. I recommend long pants as there are currently goatheads on the trail. Sun protection is also a must during summer as there is little to no shade at the top. Overall a nice hike with some local history.

Start at parking lot and follow Lake Trail to Mountain trail. Mostly shady, steeper and sunny at the Summit. Saw deer. Beautiful! Interesting information about Jack London in Cabin.

This is an awesome hike that now connects to our newest gem, No. Sonoma Mountion region park.
Both are a must do..

Hiked the Lake trail and Mountain trail to the Sonoma Ridge Tr for a total of 10.9 miles round trip. Moderate ascent with a nice view at the top. Watchout for poison oak.

Tough hike, not too bad up to the lake, then it gets a little gnarly. Make sure to bring your own water and a snack. Late August - keep your eyes out for ripe blackberries EVERYWHERE!

Positively beautiful hike. Make sure to bring your own water. Beware of mountain lions, snakes, and ticks (the usual).
