  • Good hikes. Great for dogs and even kids. Fairly level nothing to extreme. Beautiful views of petaluma and surrounding areas
  • Beautiful. If you're looking for a full day walking around then this isn't the place. But for a nice afternoon stroll it's great!
  • Flat land, decent hiking. Not a challenge
  • Trails are in good shape. Nothing to special, but a nice little place to escape to.
  • Great views, easy to moderately difficult.
