Taylor Mountain Regional Park & Open Space Preserve is a prominent Santa Rosa landmark offering panoramic views of the city and beyond. The park's 1,100 acres include sweeping grasslands, oak woodlands, and several creeks, and provide habitat for a variety of wildlife.
Recreational features include 6.4 miles of unpaved trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding, a children's play area, and an 18-hole disc golf course. From the park's 1380-foot summit, visitors can see central Sonoma County, the Laguna de Santa Rosa, the Coast Range, the Mayacamas Range and other North Bay landmarks.
The park property was acquired by the voter-funded Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation & Open Space District and deeded to Sonoma County Regional Parks in 2013. The park currently has two entrances and trailheads on Kawana Terrace and Petaluma Hill Road. Taylor Mountain's master plan calls for the eventual development of 17 miles of trails, hike-in campsites, a visitor center, and other amenities as funding becomes available. The parkland was used for ranching for many years, and cattle grazing continues in the park.
