Foothill Regional Park is located in east Windsor, in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. A former ranch, the 211 acres feature beautiful oak woodlands on rolling hillsides, scenic overlooks central Sonoma County, three ponds for bass and bluegill fishing, grassy meadows, and spring wildflowers.

Nearly 7 miles of trails cover varied terrain, offering easy to strenuous hiking options. Some trails are open to hikers only while others are available to equestrians and cyclists as well. Trails range from uneven single-track to wide ranch roads. One gravel trail is moderately accessible for visitors in wheelchairs.

Foothill Regional Park offers 6.8 miles of trails that vary from the challenging climb up Alta Vista Trail to the easy stroll along the moderately accessible Three Lakes Trail. Westwood and Oakwood Trails feature beautiful woods of oaks and other trees and excellent views of Windsor and the Coast Range. Picnic tables and benches are located throughout the park.

The following trails are for hiking only: Bobcat Trail, Pond A Loop, Pond B Loop, Pond C Trail, and the Ravine Trail. Other trails are open to hikers, equestrians and cyclists. 

Three Lakes Trail is a gravel, wheelchair-accessible trail with an accessible parking lot and picnic area. To reach the accessible parking lot, visitors need a gate card that can be obtained at no cost at Regional Parks' office at 2300 County Center Drive, Suite 120A, in Santa Rosa during regular business hours. (Please bring a photo ID and a DMV disabled plate/placard registration.) Call (707) 565-2041 for information.
