Day Hikes Around Sonoma County

California's Sonoma County is known for its wineries and a magnificent natural landscape - a picturesque mix of rugged coastline, steep cliffs, forested hillsides, and verdant agricultural valleys. The cities, towns, and villages are as diverse as the geography. Interspersed throughout the landscape are thousands of acres of undeveloped parklands, forests, and open space. Day Hikes Around Sonoma County is a collection of 95 of the county's best day hikes, providing access to both well-known and out-of-the-way greenspace. Hikes are found along the Pacific, across the coastal ridges, into wide valleys, and through thick forests. Over a third of the hikes are on the coastline, accessed by Highway 1, which connects the coastal towns as it snakes along the oceanfront cliffs and bluffs. Many coastal access points that are not easily recognized from Highway 1 are clearly described. The remaining hikes explore the inland mountains, hillsides, and valleys through numerous state parks and undeveloped land. Highlights include fog-shrouded redwood forests, creekside canyons, wildlife sanctuaries, lakes, tidal bays, wave-pounded coastline, and sweeping panoramic views. A wide range of hikes accommodates amateur to avid hikers, from beachfront strolls to canyon treks. Straight-forward directions and clear maps accompany all hikes.
