Park Information

Chanslor Ranch, nestled in the hills along Highway 1, features several miles of hiking and equestrian trails through coastal grassland with views of Bodega Bay and Bodega Head. The 378-acre property encompasses a section of Salmon Creek and its wetlands are a significant stopover for birds migrating on the Pacific Flyway. 
Sonoma County Ag + Open Space acquired Chanslor Ranch in late 2023 and will transfer ownership to Sonoma County Regional Parks by the end of 2024. Regional Parks is managing public access during the transition. Read the press release to learn more about the acquisition and transfer.
Chanslor Ranch is known regionally as a long-time horse ranch and overnight destination, and a commercial stable (Five Brooks) continues to lease a portion of the property for private trail rides and boarding. 


Chanslor Ranch features several trails for hiking and horseback riding and opportunities for picnicking, fishing, wildlife-watching and paddling on Salmon Creek. Bicycling on trails is not permitted at this time.
