“Quick and easy trip just above Sonoma with great views.”— Nick Wilder
As you ascend, you enter grasslands with big views, which just get better and better all the way to the top. On a clear day you can see San Francisco.
Loop around the top to enjoy the views in all directions and return the way you came.
In the 1990s, a resort hotel was proposed for the site, but a citizen vote rejected it in favor of recreation space, and this trail was built soon after.
