One of the access points to the park does not have a parking lot so tourists park on the side of the road with basically no shoulder and in front of an already blind corner. The tourist and illegal bicyclists sometimes don't park all the way off the road making that turn even harder to do safely. Plus bicyclists illegally ride on the road since there is no shoulder, on a road with blind corners and blind hills. This area is truly beautiful and photogenic, but the tourists and bicyclists make it hard to enjoy.

great nature walk. It can be very hilly and steep, so be prepared to work for your walk and likely break a sweat. Paved paths and dirt trails meander through the hills in this park with some excellend views of Petaluma.

A great park located in Petaluma. Lots of open space. There are some great wide paved trails and some narrower trails off of the pavement. Great place to take dogs on leashes or just explore by yourself or with friends.

This is a fine place to have easy or more vigorous hikes - once you get to the tops of the hills you have a great view of the Petaluma Valley. Every season has it's treasures here. I love this place. It is not wheel chair accessible unfortunately. Some trails are very tame. Beautiful, unspoiled county, a lake, and creeks in the right season.
