The 850-acre park in east Windsor has nearly 8 miles
of trails for hiking, bicycle and horseback riding. Shiloh Ranch is a rugged landscape in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. The park includes oak woodlands, forests of mixed evergreens, ridges with sweeping views of the Santa Rosa Plain, canyons, rolling hills, a shaded creek, and a pond. The loop trail system allows hikers to create routes of varying lengths and intensity. Many trails are old ranch roads, which makes the park popular with equestrians, while some trails are narrow single track.
A group picnic area adjacent to the parking lot has barbecues, a gazebo, a lawn and a small grove of oaks and is available by reservation. The parking area also features a large gravel lot for horse trailers, a flush restroom and a drinking fountain.
Shiloh Ranch Trails
Length:7.9 miles of trails
Shiloh Ranch Regional Park encompasses 860 acres of
former ranchland near the town of Windsor. The 7.9 mile trail system offers
moderately difficult hiking on dirt trails. Shiloh is the only Regional Park
that does not allow dogs on trails, although they are welcome in the group
picnic area. The trail system allows users to create several loop options of
varying length. For an extensive tour of the park, take the Big Leaf Trail to
the Canyon Trail, connect with the Pond Trail, and finish the loop by returning
to the parking lot on the Creekside Trail. Alternately, the loop can be
extended with a 1.6 mile out and back along the Mark West Creek Trail, or
shortened by taking the South Ridge Trail cutoff. Many of the trails are
former ranch roads, and their width coupled with ample horse trailer parking
makes Shiloh a popular destination for equestrians. The Ridge Trail area
tends to get warm in summer months, while the Creekside Trail offers a shady
respite from the heat. Most of the hikes wind through oak woodland with
views of the Santa Rosa plain.
