Maxwell Farms Regional Park Professional Review and Guide
"Maxwell Farms Regional Park is located at the northwest end of Sonoma just south of Boyes Hot Springs. The 85-acre park borders Sonoma Creek in a lush riparian corridor. The park has two distinct personalities. The developed northeast portion of the park includes picnic areas, athletic fields, a playground, and a Boys and Girls Club. The southwest half of the park is a natural 40-acre oasis with woodlands that are dominated by immense California bays and lush grassland meadows. The Maxwell family lived on this land from 1859 to 1968. They planted plum and apricot orchards in the late 1800s, which are still productive. This hike loops around the natural area and follows the watercourse of Sonoma Creek."
