Sonoma Valley Regional Park is in the center of the Sonoma Valley, next to the village of Glen Ellen. 

The 202-acre park features several miles of trails, including a paved, 1.2-mile path curving through magnificent oak woodland. Unpaved trails connect to surrounding hillsides and ridges, offering looped hiking options. 

The entrance offers a grassy picnic and barbecue area under the shade of large oaks. Spring brings colorful displays of poppies, lupine and other wildflowers.

Trails

The park's main trail, the Valley of the Moon Trail, is a paved, streamside trail running through a dense oak forest between Highway 12 and Arnold Drive. Trails linking to surrounding ridges feature beautiful valley views. Trails are open to hikers, bikers and equestrians. 

Wildfire

Sonoma Valley Regional Park experienced significant wildfire in October 2017. Much of the undergrowth and some trees burned, but the oak canopy is largely intact. The park has reopened and offers a unique opportunity to watch a landscape regenerate from fire. 

Dog Park

The "Elizabeth Perrone Dog Park" adjacent to the parking area offers a fenced area for dogs to play off-leash.  

Accessibility

Paved, wheelchair-accessible trail; accessible picnic areas; and accessible portable restroom.
