Great hike lots of shade, easy to get turned around if you didn’t have this app to follow, many trail intersections, there is a nice pond and at the top of the ridge great views.

Nice hike with lots of beautiful scenery and a good amount of wild life  its a good hike if you want to get a good hike in for the whole day and feel it the next day. I enjoy going once a week!

You can see SF from Gunsight Rock on a clear day! Nice hike. Dog friendly.

Nice walking trail lots of people exercising, birds, cows even saw a squirrel, vineyards and running creek along side. all around great trail

Beautiful. Moderate climb, the marsh at the end is gorgeous. Combination of burnt, new, and existing plant life. Rocky paths, not many people out there, occasional mountain bikers.

a lovely walk if you need something easy going or want to do a talk-and-walk or jog. benches nearby, good for picnics!

one of my favorite easy going hikes. beautiful views in the fall overlooking Windsor.

good first 3.5 miles with a walk on asphalt for the last mile.

this montain demands the best of your it is a great workout.

A pleasant, moderate hike to Lake Ilsanjo and back. Went on a very sunny Saturday afternoon in early July. Nice heat under the sun but not sweltering.

nice rock garden for mountain biking

I absolutely loved this hike, and chose a perfect day to tackle it! Look for milder temps, there are some wooded areas but also a fire road that leaves you blistering in the sun. Most of the way up will leave you excited for whats about to come next, but people aren’t kidding when they say the last 10 minutes is a steep climb. Regardless, you MUST make it all the way to the top. If you are feeling like having an adventure, you can continue through, which leads you off towards bald mountain. 2 mountains in a day!

Absolutely wonderful trail! It comes to a gate that you must pass, then you get to experience some friendly cows if you are lucky. There are a couple points that will definitely get your heart pumping, so be prepared for a decent hike but its well with the trip and perfect for running!

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!

Good trail, usually not crowded, and you might meet a couple of cows & horses along the way. Great views all the way, especially at the peak.

Beautiful first 2 or 3 miles with nice views. Ended up walking the last mile or so on the road in the sun though.

love this trail. Quick and easy, great view from the top, love the cows

pretty fun and easy hike.

Beautiful hike with lots of variety. About half was shaded, the other half exposed. Lots of wildlife including flogs and deer.

Beautiful view of Santa Rosa, can’t beat it at sunset.

Beautiful view!!! Kicked my Mo F***** asssss!!!!!

I love this trail it's so nice to get off of work at 4 and be able to head up for a quick and decent hike. would recommend to anyone!

This trail is just down the street from my house. At this writing the trail is open an cleared but there is a great deal of evidence of the October wildfires. The park suffered a great deal of burn but is open and clear.
The level is probably difficult with large rocks and roots in some places. Lots of hikers, mountain bikes and runners but it’s never too crowded.

all the park had to offer was the view from the top! not worth $7.00 to park should be free

Great hike. Well maintained. Amazing to see the wildlife recovering after the fire. Everything was so green and lots of new growth. Highly recommended.

Beautiful views looking at the hills and mountains in the distance. Also amazing views of the city, always cool wildlife to watch like turkeys, skunks, hawks, slugs, etc. cows are also on premises and don’t mess with you. Pupper and I love going for our daily hikes here, there are multiple trails some harder than the other but also some moderate ones. Definitely recommend!

Beautiful trail, especially a few days after the rain with a strong stream in the creek. Other than a short stretch that was too steep for me to run up or down, moderate trail. Free parking on the street near trail head.

I noticed lots of 4+ star ratings on this trail but 3 stars on sugarloaf vista, just a few miles away. They aren’t really even comparable from a views and terrain diversity perspective. maybe it’s the mountain biker preference for this trail.
