Ragle Ranch Regional Park Trails
Length:3.56 miles of trails
Ragle Ranch Regional Park contains 3.56 miles of trails in the Atascadero Creek flood plain. Trails lined with willows, ashes, and oaks pass wetlands and meadows and cross bridges over small streams.
Hilltop Trail offers views across the watershed towards western Sonoma County while Blackberry Trail offers a loop around the perimeter of the meadows. Many of the trails become muddy in wet weather, but drain quickly due to sandy soils.
The hiking trails present excellent wildlife-viewing opportunities. Leashed dogs and equestrians are welcome on all trails, and the park contains a gravel parking area with potable water for equestrian parking.
Fog to Bog Quest
A quest is an interactive treasure hunt that teaches people about special places. The Community Clean Water Institute has partnered with the Atascadero/Green Valley Watershed Council and Regional Parks to create a watershed quest at Ragle Ranch Regional Park.
By going on this quest, you can learn about the park's seasonal wetland, make water-quality observations, and have fun while adventuring in this section of the Atascadero/Green Valley watershed.
This quest begins at the top of Blackberry Trail, near the gazebo. Pick up your quest map there or print your own (366 kB).
