Shiloh Ranch Park

This is a great hike around Shiloh Ranch Regional Park.  It's about 3.5 miles with an elevation gain of around 600 feet.  This will probably take us 1.5 hours to do, depending on the speed of the group.  For someone just starting or returning to hiking this will not seem easy as there is a short climb involved.

We will head out on Big Leaf Trail and quickly take a left onto Creekside trail for a walk up a canyon under shady pines and oaks.   After leaving the canyon we will enter a grassy valley complete with a scenic pond.  We continue up the Ridge trail and take a left on South Ridge trail to reach the top of the park and the vista area.   We then continue down on South Ridge to Big Leaf trail to reach the parking area.  This hike does have hills but they are gradual and somewhat rolling.  As long as you are comfortable with hiking on trails and hills this is a great hike for the beginning to intermediate hiker.

Please come prepared with the following:

·  Water

·  Sunblock/Hat

·  Layered clothing as it will start off cool but quickly warm up!

·  Comfortable walking shoes

No dogs are allowed at Shiloh County Park

Sonoma County Parks requires an annual parking pass or $7.00 parking fee to park in the lot.  NOTE if you do not have a parking pass, there is free street parking available.

    It was hilly and a challenge in terms of breathing hard.
