  • This is a wonderful place to hike near to Santa Rosa. Plenty of parking, with hiking levels for everyone. I prefer the Meadow, Brushy Peaks, Red Mountain, Headwaters, and Lower Bear Mountain loop...  more »
  • We wanted a hike with some challenge but not for 2 hours. This was just perfect! Beautiful trees and the trails were clean and safe for most. I would not recommend to people with knee or balance...  more »

  • We were at the group campsite. Isolated and beautiful place where there are enough tables for 50 people at least. Two spots for tent beside the observatory lead by a wonderful team of volunteers (book a night there for your group). Plenty of trails. Kids rode their bikes. Showers with quarters, on the family campsite (use your car). Two portable toilets. A bit smelly, no compost nor recycle bin: my only complaint :)
  • Great camping. Super kid friendly and dogs are allowed but not off the paved roads which is a bummer. Super happy they allow dogs. The only downside was the bathrooms. Although updated, there were rings in the toilets indicating they had not been thoroughly cleaned in sometime.
