Kawana Terrace Entrance Closure - Morning of July 25

The Kawana Terrace entrance to Taylor Mountain will be closed the morning of Wednesday, July 25, 2018 to move cattle off the site. The entrance will reopen at approximately noon. Please use the Petaluma Hill Road entrance during this time.

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 5.5 miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding and an 18-hole disc golf course. 

The park's master plan calls for the eventual development of 17 miles of trails, a natural play area, 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. 

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.
