Spend the Day at Foothill Regional Park

Foothill-Regional-Pk1Choose from a number of trails over varied terrain at Foothill Regional Park, just east of Windsor, in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. A former ranch, the 211 acres feature beautiful oak woodlands on rolling hillsides, scenic overlooks central Sonoma County, three ponds for bass and bluegill fishing, grassy meadows, and spring wildflowers.

The park offers 6.8 miles of hiking, with difficulty levels ranging from the challenging climb up Alta Vista Trail to an easy stroll along Three Lakes Trail. Picnic Tables and benches are located throughout the park. Some trails are restricted to hiking, while the rest are available to equestrians and cyclists. The park is open from 7am to sunset, and well maintained by Sonoma County Regional Parks. No wading, swimming or boating is allowed. You can access the park at 1351 Arata Lane (near Hembree lane) in Windsor.

Parking is $7 per vehicle, free for Regional Parks members. (707) 433-1625. • parks.sonomacounty.ca.gov/
