Annadel State Park, Santa Rosa

4.8
#7 of 13 in Nature in Sonoma County
Trione-Annadel State Park is a state park of California in the United States. It is situated at the northern edge of Sonoma Valley and is adjacent to Spring Lake Regional Park in Santa Rosa. It offers many recreational activities within its 5092acre property.The rock formations of Trione-Annadel have played central role in its history: its volcanic origins, the Native American use of obsidian, the early 1900s mining of cobblestones, and modern hikers' appreciation of its volcanic rock outcrops.These lands were occupied by the Wappo and Pomo people in prehistoric times, who would have primarily inhabited the riparian zones and the marsh perimeter. Annadel includes what some biologists consider the best example of undisturbed northern oak woodlands in existence. Visitors can enjoy the park's diverse wildlife and scenery during any time of the year but are perhaps most rewarded from April through June when most wildflowers are in bloom.

  • You can get there through numerous trails,even from Howard Park or Spring Lake. Either trail takes you through awesome scenery and plenty of chances to observe wildlife. The lake itself is beautiful. There are lots of areas with picnic tables, and fishing, not to mention swimming. But beware of the poison oak! It grows rampant there. Also use insect repellent and sunscreen. The ticks and mosquitoes are plentiful. There are no lifeguards there and you do have to watch out for bikers and horses.
  • I absolutely love hiking. Annadel is beautiful. Family friendly trails. Some more intense trails. Good for biking, family hikes, picnics. Get out enjoy mother nature at annadel
  • Great place for a quick trip into nature! Watch out for ticks but have fun! Jump in the lake but don't drink the water or go in with a open wound :)
  • Beautiful views of Santa Rosa with large lakes and deep forests. All you could want from a state park near town. Great Verizon reception as well!!
  • Love hiking and biking Annadel! The trails are clean, most others are friendly, and the views are beautiful.

Where to stay in Santa Rosa

The old claim that Santa Rosa is "Where Everything Comes Together" remains undeniably true, at least when it comes to its accommodations. Although you can always stay in San Francisco, just an hour to the south, Santa Rosa offers plenty of lodging options to suit every traveler's budget. You can choose from among luxury hotels, vacation rental homes, and inns, all within minutes of downtown. If you prefer to rough it in wine country, choose one of the area's rustic campgrounds.
