Hood Mountain Regional Park & Preserve is a 1,750-acre wilderness park on the edge of the Sonoma Valley, about 5 miles southeast of Santa Rosa. The park offers 19 miles of trails for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians.
At 2,730 feet, Hood Mountain is the highest peak in the Mayacamas Mountains. Its Gunsight Rock outcropping above Highway 12 offers stunning views of the Sonoma Valley and beyond.
Much of the southwest portion of Hood Mountain burned in 2017, and several trails remain closed. Please see the Hood Mountain map for details.
Environmental campsites are available reservation and can be reached by hiking approximately 2 miles from parking areas.
Trails climb through mixed-conifer forests and cross meadows and creeks. Due to elevation gains, the hiking can strenuous.
