Park Information

Crane Creek Regional Park features rolling grasslands and beautiful oaks east of Rohnert Park. The 128-acre park has 3.5 miles of trails and an 18-hole disc golf course. Crane Creek flows through the middle of the park. Ridges offer sweeping views of the countryside. Meadows are covered with wildflowers in spring.

Picnic tables are located throughout the park. Restrooms are in the parking lot. There is no drinking fountain.

Trails

Multi-use trails loop around the perimeter of the park, with additional hiking-only trails crossing the interior and running along the creek. 

Crane Creek offers 3.51 miles of trail through meadows and oak woodlands. The trails cover rolling terrain, with the easiest trails running parallel to Crane Creek beneath mature oaks. For a little bit more exertion, the Fiddleneck and Hawk Ridge trails offer excellent views from the top of the hill.

The Fiddleneck, Buckeye, and Northern Loop trails are suitable for equestrians, hikers, and bikers. Many equestrians enjoy riding the seasonal firebreak that follows the southwestern boundary of the park. The remaining trails are suitable for hiking only.

The Creek and Lupine trails are wheelchairs accessible with a compacted gravel surface.

Cattle Grazing

Cattle are at Crane Creek for seasonal grazing to reduce fire risk and promote biodiversity.

Tips for sharing trails with cattle:

  • Keep your dog on a leash: Dogs are perceived as predators. Cows cannot distinguish the difference between a coyote and a dog and may become aggravated by an off-leash dog.
  • Do not attempt to pet or feed the cows: Do not get in between a calf and its mother and do not approach a stray calf, as its mother is likely nearby.
  • If cattle are blocking the trail: Make yourself known well in advance by waving your arms and shouting. This will usually make cows scatter. 
  • Give cattle plenty of space and an avenue of escape: If you encounter a cow that acts in a threatening manner or appears to be sick, injured, or dead, please take note of the location and report it to parks staff.

Accessibility

Some gravel, wheelchair-accessible trails.
