Sonoma Valley Regional Park is in the center of the Sonoma Valley, next to the village of Glen Ellen. The 202-acre park features several miles of trails for hiking, bicycling and horseback riding and offers the tranquility of a much larger preserve due the quality of habitat and surrounding open space.

The park's main path is a paved, 1.2-mile trail that begins near a wetland and meadow, winds through magnificent oak woodlands and follows a seasonal creek. The trail is ADA accessible, and picnic tables along the way are lovely spots to linger and enjoy the quiet beauty. Several unpaved trails on the hillsides and ridgetops offer looped hiking options. A beautiful 29-acre addition to the park's northern boundary opened in May 2015, with a trail connection to the center of the park. 

The park's Highway 12 entrance features the off-leash Elizabeth Perrone Dog Park; a shaded, grassy picnic area;  barbecues; and drinking fountain. The one-acre dog park is fully fenced, with a double-gated entry, a drinking fountain for dogs and a shade gazebo. 

Sonoma Vally Regional Trails

A 1.2-mile paved, ADA-accessible trail runs through the center of the park. The trail borders a seasonal creek and winds through a beautiful woodland of oaks draped in lichen.

The 1.15-mile Corridor Ridge Trail climbs from the parking lot to the top of a small ridge on the park's southern boundary and follows the wooded ridge across the park before descending near Arnold Drive. The trail offers occasional views of the Sonoma Valley. Several smaller trails connect the main trail to the ridges.

Sonoma Valley Regional Park A 29-acre addition to the park's northern boundary opened in May 2015. The property features an unpaved path of about .75 miles with sweeping views of the Sonoma Valley and the Mayacamas Range. The property is an important piece of the Sonoma Valley Wildlife Corridor, a collection of protected lands allowing animals safe crossing on the valley floor.
