Located along the Russian River, Riverfront Regional Park is just minutes west of downtown Windsor and surrounded by classic Wine Country scenery. The park features two beautiful lakes for fishing, kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddling. A 2-mile trail loops around the larger lake, Lake Benoist, with a short spur to a small beach on the Russian River. A .5-mile trail winds through a majestic grove of coast redwoods. The redwood forest also features one of Regional Parks' largest and loveliest group picnic areas with a large barbecue, a volleyball area, and a horseshoe pit. 

The park's master plan identifies opportunities for additional trails, picnic areas, a Lake Benoist boat launch, and boating access to the Russian River.

Riverfront Regional Park Trails

Length:3.12 miles of trails

Riverfront Regional Park is located just outside of the town of Windsor and includes 3.12 miles of trail. The primary trail leads from the parking lot to a loop around Lake Benoist, one of two reclaimed gravel pits within the park. While swimming is prohibited, the lakes are popular with fishermen and non-motorized boating is allowed. The Redwood Hill Trail offers a pleasant climb up and over a small hill from the picnic area, passing through oak woodland. Equestrians are allowed on the Lake Benoist Loop Trail, and facilities include equestrian parking and hitching posts.
