Helen Putnam Regional Park is a compact wilderness park southwest of Petaluma. Its 6 miles of trails cross grassy hillsides and weave through oak woodlands. Ridge-top trails provide panoramic views of the city and the southern Sonoma County countryside.

A fishing pond contains bluegill and other fish. An accessible playground, picnic area and gazebo are located near the parking lot.


Helen Putnam Park's looped trail system lets hikers create walks of varying length and difficulty, making the park a great choice for beginning hikers looking for a bit of a challenge. Trails are also open to cyclists and horseback riders.
