Nice invigorating hiking trail with lots of birds and other wildlife. Can be slick in spots after rain.

A wonderful hike, so close to Santa Rosa, but you quickly forget you are near the city. Great views, good hardy climb. Bring binoculars or a telephoto lens to capture good views of the birds.

Love this trail. Perfect for cardio and the perfect distance.

I used to live in RP and I loved this trail. Good and steep for cardio and glutes and I enjoyed seeing cows and picking blackberries in the summer. Never crowded, great views and free parking near the frisbee course

One of the nicer hikes in santa rosa and not too far from downtown. There is a couple of spots where it gets steep, but you can take it slow. Otherwise mostly wide path and nice views when you get to the top.

Great workout- took eastern trail up, steep. Nice views of town but overall pretty dry surroundings with almost no tree cover the whole way makes for a less enjoyable hike compared to others. Limited free parking along the road outside the parking lot.

Nice hike with some good views. We took the western trail up and on the way down. There isn't much tree cover so I would recommend starting somewhat early or on a cool day. The Alltrails app said it was 4.8 miles from the lower parking lot to the top and back.
