Friday Nature Hikes

North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park

Please join us on Friday June 19 as we hike through shady forests, a redwood grove and open meadows at the new North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park.  

We will follow the Ridge trail from the county park to the western boundary of Jack London State Park and back again. Our moderate hike is 8 miles round-trip and takes about 5 1/2 hours, including a lunch stop. However, feel free to turn around earlier—just let the leader know. 

 We will meet at the parking lot of the regional park at 8:45 am for a prompt 9:00 am departure. The address is 5297 Sonoma Mountain Road, Santa Rosa. You may take Route 12 to Bennett Valley Rd to Sonoma Mountain Road. Another route is Roberts Road to Presley Road to Sonoma Mountain Road. Please allow yourself ample driving time if you aren’t familiar with this park. As usual, bring two containers of water and a bag lunch. The parking fee is $7 or free with a regional park pass.

Looking forward to an incredible day on the trail.
