Foothill Regional Park

Foothill Regional Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The loop through Foothill Regional Park is a pleasant trail with just enough length and steep terrain to make it feel like it penetrates deep into the Mayacamas backcountry without having to travel too far from the trailhead. It passes three small ponds on the way to great views of the Russian River Valley and Mount Saint Helena. Secreted away in the hills of the Chalk Hill area, just east of the city of Windsor, is small Foothill Regional Park. Encompassing 211 acres, it is one of the smaller inland parks in Sonoma County’s excellent regional park system. Despite its small size, the park is home to surprisingly rugged terrain, deep forests, a trio of small ponds, and far- reaching vistas."

"Foothill Regional Park sits in the rolling hills at the northeast corner of Windsor between Highway 101 and Chalk Hill Valley. The 211-acre parkland was a cattle ranch until the mid-1980s. The land is covered in oak savanna that is scattered with several species of oaks, bay, madrone, and buckeye trees. Many of the trails that weave through the rolling hills are old ranch roads. This hike loops around the perimeter of the park on several connecting trails. The hike passes three ponds and climbs oak-dotted hills to scenic overlooks of the Santa Rosa Plain, the Russian River Valley, and the town of Windsor."
