This was a wonderful trail for the whole family! We brought both kids, 9 and 3, with their bikes and we ran! The trail was nicely paved and easy for them to join!

Very nice walk, I walk on the dirt outer trails. Great for dogs and bikes. I go almost everyday and it gets better every time.

We took a family day hike/ walk today. There are plenty of different trails to go on. Most are paved roads and some dirt trails off the beaten path. We went through the Howarth Park parking area and did the Spring Lake Loop in addition to a little section in Annadel Park. It’s really easy and you of course see a lake. Lots of people and bikes. So there is a lot of traffic. Lots of picnic areas. You could also bring your canoe or motor-less boat and paddle around the lake.

Great place to take the family. It's about two miles to go all the way around the lake. It's a very popular running and biking spot during the warmer months.

Always a nice hike around the lake, pretty flat all around so not very challenging but perfect for taking the kids on . Plenty to see around the lake, better during the spring or peak fall .

Pretty cool place to jog, not much for challenging uphill terrain, mostly flat, but very family and dog friendly.

I hike here 3+ times a week! I love it here!!! It's different but the same every time I come here. I highly recommend it! You can stay on pretty flat ground or go off road in the dirt. Mountain biking is amazing here too!!

We used to go to Spring Lake all the time when we lived close by. A nice easy walk and an enjoyable place to get outdoors with a stroller! Certainly not a hike.

This park always seems to be bustling with people/ animals. I personally like to take my dogs walking around lake Ralphine.

Great place to check out if you feel like going outside for a nice walk and getting some fresh air. The park/lake was super busy. I only meant to walk around Lake Ralphine but decided to check out the smaller trails away from the crowds and the paved path so I ended up walking around the entire park and both lakes. Very cool plants and trees along the hiking trails. Disliked how the trails ran along the backside of peoples backyards and the huge water tanks kinda threw me off a bit. The geese are not shy since they have obviously been fed by visitors for many years. I saw some turtles in the lagoon area sunbathing on a log with some ducks wading around them which was very cool to watch while taking a break and enjoying a snack.

Excellent birding along the lake. Super easy trail that is shady in places, wide open sunshine in places, and easily enjoyed by fitness walkers, baby strollers, dog walkers, joggers, etc. $6 day use/parking fee to enter the park. Another option is to park along the 5200 block of Montgomery Drive which provides immediate access to the trails.

Great for an easy walk/hike in the neighborhood. Hard to believe you are still in downtown Sant Rosa!
