Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

Robert Stone
"The Woodland Ridge Trail is an easily accessible interpretive loop trail that offers an introduction to the various habitats around Lake Sonoma. The trail moderately climbs through four different plant communities: chaparral, coast redwood, Douglas fir, and oak woodland. At the ridge are sweeping vistas of Alexander Valley, the Mayacamas Mountains, Warm Springs Dam, and the lower portion of Lake Sonoma. The interpretive trail has 19 learning stations and an accompanying nature guide available at the Lake Sonoma Visitor Center. The learning stations describe how plants adapt, how the climate effects plants, the effects of fire, edible and medicinal plants, and wildlife."
Bubba Suess
"The short Woodland Ridge Trail is a quick hike with varied terrain, a great introduction to the Lake Sonoma area, and it offers a great opportunity for hikers to enjoy a quick jaunt in the beautiful Dry Creek Valley. Lake Sonoma is a large reservoir in north- central Sonoma County. It lies at the head of Dry Creek Valley, a premier wine- making appellation. The lake impounds Dry Creek, which begins in southern Mendocino County and runs 43 miles to its confluence with the Russian River near Healdsburg."
