Discover, Play, Learn
With trails leading to beaches,
mountains, forests, meadows and lakes, it's easy to discover why Sonoma
County is so special. The parks feature trails for all types of
adventurers, from paved paths for easy walks to wilderness trails for
strenuous treks. Join a guided outing or explore on your own.
Seeing Sonoma County from a bicycle is
a must-do. We have flat, paved routes perfect for families and
beginning cyclists and single-track trails to challenge
experienced off-road riders.
- Horseback Riding
The Regional Parks are horse
friendly, that's for sure. Equestrians are welcome on trails throughout
the county. Climb wooded mountains or gallop across a sandy beach.
Located along the Pacific flyway, Sonoma County is a birding paradise, and the Regional Parks provide abundant vantage points. Learn more about our bird-watching hot spots.
- Boating, Paddling, and Fishing
Explore Sonoma County by water. We have launches on lakes, the Russian River and along the coast and an ocean marina in Bodega Harbor. Fresh and saltwater fishing options are plentiful.
