Taylor Mountain Regional Park & Open Space Preserve is a prominent landmark in southeast Santa Rosa and offers panoramic views of the city from trails that climb to the summit. 

This 1,100-acre park features grassy hillsides, oak woodlands and several creeks that all provide habitat for a variety of wildlife. 

The park currently offers 6.4 miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding, an 18-hole disc golf course and an accessible natural play area. 

The park's master plan calls for the eventual development of 17 miles of trails, hike-in campsites, a visitor center and other features as funding becomes available. 


Two routes - the Eastern and Western Routes - lead to the mountain's mid-section, with the Eastern Route continuing on to the summit for a 1,100-foot elevation gain. The Todd Creek and Red Hill trails offer less-strenuous hikes through lovely oak woodlands. 

Red Tail Play Area

The Red Tail Play Area, a nature-inspired playground for families, opened near the south entrance (Petaluma Hill Road) in December 2020. The accessible play area includes an embankment slide, natural stone and log climbing features, benches and picnic tables, a basket swing, and interactive, supersized red-tailed hawk’s nest.

Cattle Grazing

In keeping with the site’s agricultural history and resource management goals, cattle grazing continues at Taylor Mountain. 



Accessible parking, picnic site and portable restroom.
