Staying Healthy and Safe on Trails 

Get the most out of your time on Sonoma County's trails with these health and safety tips:

  • Stay on marked trails at all times.
  • Carry your cell phone.
  • Print or download the trail map before you arrive at the park, or snap a photo of the trail map at the park entrance.
  • Wear sturdy shoes and dress in layers to accommodate the region's micro-climates. Apply sunscreen and pack a hat and sunglasses.
  • Bring water for everyone in your party and depending on the length of your hike, a high-energy snack or lunch. If you're hiking with your dog, be sure to bring water and a bowl for your pet.
  • Follow suggestions from the Marin/Sonoma Mosquito & Vector Control District to reduce your exposure to ticks. When you complete your hike, check yourself and your dog for ticks.
