Mark West Preview Days

May 22, 2021 from 8:30 AM 2:00 PM

Enjoy the rugged beauty of nearly 1,200 acres acquired by Sonoma County Ag + Open Space, and recently transferred to Regional Parks for a future park. Discover Mark West Creek, riparian woodlands, towering redwoods, and beautiful views and envision the land’s potential as a park. Park staff and volunteers will be available to answer questions and point out the land’s features, including the regrowth from the 2017 wildfires and the master planning process to permanently open the park. Registration is required for this free event. For more information, contact Mark Morley by email at

The property entrance is at 3000 Porter Creek Road, west of Safari West, and will be marked by road signs. Parking is limited, so registration is required. Bring your own water. Water is not available on site. Dogs on leash are allowed. Bicycles and horses are not permitted at this time.


Approximately 1 mile of unpaved trail connects the parking area to the existing network of ranch roads and trails on the property. This first mile of trail meets proposed federal accessibility standards to the extent possible at this time. Some sections of trails within the park do not meet accessibility standards. Accessible parking spaces (unpaved but leveled and signed), picnic tables, portable restrooms and hand-washing stations also are available. When arriving, ask staff to direct you to accessible parking.
