Decent place to walk. I wish it was paved all the way through. Don’t have any children bring their scooters unless you want to carry it for a portion of the trail. All the people I’ve encountered are nice. Nice place to bring a dog.

Had an hour to kill after breakfast. got some sun and exercise

If you have a dog this is not the place to take them....

Ticks and foxtails. Bad bad bad.

Not worth the online lecture and quiz, followed by a two-week wait for your permit.

Lots of bird watching! Love the expansion work they’ve done in recent years. Avoid dusk and dawn hikes during warmer months to avoid gnats and mosquitoes.

I think this a great hike if you're short on time or just getting into hiking! it's not too difficult and offers some pretty awesome views of Petaluma facing east and sprawling hills and vineyards facing west. It's also located close to town. the trails are marked nicely and easy to navigate as well!

Wow, this is one of the worst trails I’ve ever been on. Tons of dog poop and trash everywhere along the trail. In two spots there were piles 3 feet high. There were 2 sketchy men fishing in one spot, who looked to be homeless. They gave me weird looks. Thankfully I had my pit bull mix with me and they left me alone.

Very easy and great walk

Flat easy enjoyable 2.2 walk!

Truly an easy ride mixed surface, started as paved then to loose dirt and then decomposed granite. Lots of information boards along the trail so you can familiarize yourself with the birds, plants & animals you may encounter. I saw about 8 jack rabbits along the trail. Beautiful scenery a blending of nature & modern times.

Very pretty, but you need a permit to enter. You have to sit through an online orientation and answer questions before the city will mail you a permit.

Lots of options and most of the trails are smooth. However, if you are taking the Panorama Trail, that is a steep, and kind of trecheous, hill. I would not rank that section as "easy." The rest of that trail was fantastic and I did some of the attached loops on my way around.

As easy as it gets... perfect for putting a baby to sleep in her carriage, walking a dog, or if your aging body parts cannot take more than easy and slow. Not a lot to see other than marshes and faraway horizons. Not challenging whatsoever (the landscape also feels artificial), but pleasant. Good for enjoying a calm summer day. Facilities include tables, bathrooms and parking.

There are quite a few fun geocaches in the park, with nice trails to hike. Just be careful of the abundance of Poison Oak.

schollenberger is a fantastic place to go for an easy walk. It is a great place to go bird watching. Bring your camera and binoculars and walk the loop. You can explore both wetlands and the Petaluma river while on your walk.
