>> Distance & Route:
Estimated 14.5 miles and 1,360ft elevation gain, walking poles are helpful through Trione-Annadel State Park. We’ll begin at the Kenwood Plaza Park to open our pilgrim circle before winding through the quiet morning neighborhood of Kenwood and onto Hwy 12 with the Sonoma Valley vineyards leading our way to Trione-Annadel State Park. We’ll enter the park via the Lawndale entrance and then experience the natural pattern of forest recovery from the recent fires, stunning views of Sonoma Valley and the Mayacamas Mtns, pass by Ledson Marsh, Buick Meadow, Redwood groves, fern grottos, Lake Illsanjo. We’ll then follow Spring Creek down the mountain before a quick pause at Spring Lake and follow the trail out through oak trees to Howarth Park and end our day's journey in the parking area behind Mary's Pizza. The Santa Rosa Trail House is nearby for anyone interested in a refreshing beverage and/or pub grub for table fellowship post-walk.
This is a moderately strenuous 14.5 mile walk. For your own safety and in consideration of fellow walkers this walk should not be attempted unless you know you are experienced and capable at this distance.
