Sonoma County Regional Parks Hiking and walking are by far the most popular activities in Sonoma County's Regional Parks.

With more than 140 miles of trails leading to beaches, mountains, forests, lakes, and meadows, it's easy to discover the beauty of Sonoma County and the health benefits of time spent in nature. 

From paved paths for easy walks to remote routes for strenuous treks, we have trails for all types of explorers and destinations as spectacular as the Sonoma Valley, the Russian River and the Sonoma Coast.

Hiking with Dogs:
Dogs love hiking just as much as people do and are allowed on all trails except at Shiloh Ranch and North Sonoma Mountain.

• Keep you dog on a leash no longer than 6 feet. Rangers can cite dog owners who disregard the leash law, and citations require a court appearance and could result in a hefty fine.
• The leash law is intended to keep park visitors and dogs safe. No one likes to see an unfamiliar dog bounding toward them, and dogs running off leash could encounter wild animals or get swept into rough surf.
• When hiking, please carry water for your pet, a portable bowl, and waste bags.

Every good bird deserves watching at Bodega Bay, and the 1.2-mile Bird Walk Coastal Access Trail is a great venue for walking your dog while sharpening your identification skills. The trail follows a levee around two ponds in a 14-acre revitalized saltwater marsh area. It connects to Doran Regional Park, a sandy, 120-acre spit that forms the northern border of Bodega Bay and features a 2-mile beach where leashed dogs are welcome to accompany you on an invigorating walk. more »
