Entered the trail head near the lagoon. You can take a single track trail on the left of the dry creek or take the fire road up the right side. The canyon trail is doable for most about 2/3 the way. The trail forks off right right across the creek bed and is pretty washed out. We walked our bikes up the last 1/4 of the trail to the lake- but it was worth it. Picnic tables and beautiful lakeside vista provided good shade to take a breather. The decent down the fire road provided some fun technical wash-out terrain perfectly suited for a beginner. Definitely worth the effort and goes into the record books as a great anniversary bike ride. Be sure to grab a beer or a glass of wine at the Otter Cafe and watch the dogs swim in the summer to celebrate!

well maintained. not too much traffic on a weekday.

Real nice climb up and ride down

Steep in the beginning and end really nice trail. Great views

Out and back - Los Alamos Trailhead to Mt Hood Summit and then to Gunsight Rock. I did this on a Sunday and started at 7AM. Took around 4 hours out and back. Around 9 miles. Started on Mt. Hood trail then veered onto the Summit Trail for the scenic, singletrack route. Definitely recommend doing Summit Trail going up and taking the Mt Hood Trail (fireroad) down. Summit trail is technical and has bushes, poison oak in your way, etc. I wore shorts and short sleeve shirt and I watched my step very carefully. No poison oak on me yet. Hood mountain Summit was ok. Not great views so I went on to Gunsight Rock which is just down below Mt Hood Summit. Spectacular views once you reach Gunsight Rock. You must go!! Trail is marked to get there, so definitely do it. DONT LEAVE WITHOUT GOING. Just watch your steps once you reach the rock. I took the fire road down back to LA trailhead. I will defnitely be back soon.

beautiful trail

First time here. Amazing views. Worth the time to go to the top!!! We went in August and it was 95 degrees. It would have been great as a morning or evening hike. Steep in spots and limited shade. On the way down we were busy looking at the views (and melting from mid day sun) and missed our turn. A lot of crisscrossing paths with no information or signage. We ended up on a goat trail that lead to the other side and opposite of our where we were parked. We ended up with a nice 5.6 mile hike. First hike since Tib/fib fracture and knee replacements, so if I survived to the top it must not be too bad

If you're at this park, it's a must-do trail. The tree is absolutley breaktaking and the views are beautiful. Weather was nice and windy, not too hot, and trail was mostly covered until you got near the top. There is a picnic bench at the top too for a lunch or break.

Nice trail but this Alltrails version ends kind of abruptly and not at the top of a mountain or anything.

It was awesome! Brought my pup and went swimming for awhile, perfect to cool off. Plenty of shade on trails, and benches to sit to take a break on our walk. Favorite part was letting my pup swim and play fetch in the water. Ended up finding a small spot next to kayak rentals to let him swim for Awhile. Good day can’t wait to go back.

crowded at times

This was a great hike but I had to amend it because one of the trails was closed. Beautiful views and some parts of the trail go through areas where the fires passed through

Loved it! Will def do it again!!

Flushing toilets in the lot and a sink to wash hands. $7 for parking or parks pass. Trail is well marked. Well maintained trail. Dry creek is still pretty. Pond trail is more rocky. Had to change my route due to the trail being closed in one section Not so well maintained on way down. Good balance of sun in the shade. A good amount of benches to sit on. Information markers on Creekside Trail about post fire hike. Next time I will do Creekside at the pond and back instead of going up the ridge.

Dogs are NOT allowed. Jasmine was disappointed that she couldn't go.

Backpacking is availible via sonomacountycamping.org

Rocky and steep in parts but amazing views

I love this hike. lots of shade and wildlife

Nice late morning hike. Mid to upper 60s. Morning fog clearing. Hiked up ridge road and down ridge vista steep single track.

Very nice hike, moderate climb, shady areas Saw some deer, quail and found some blackberries along the trail.

Been hiking this park few times & I will be back !!

Great trail, it’s shocking how beautiful it is in the trail bc it’s pretty much in the middle of wine country. Gnarled trees, and tons of shade. Just under 4 miles and goes up and down. Parking is $7.00 but if u park outside the gate, it’s free.

plenty of side trail to get a little lost on

great uphill walk/run
