Late afternoon Indian Valley/Ignacio Valley Loop Hike, 5 Miles (Moderate)

I am offering this loop hike two days in a row. Different directions, and combinations of trails for each day. First wildflowers are coming in...

We will travel on a meandering 5-6 mile loop starting at the entrance gate to Indian Valley Community College. We will have some great views and will be traveling through mixed forest. We will gain approximately 600 feet in elevation.

Here is a link to a map:

Car pool locations:

SANTA ROSA: Coddingtown Mall parking lot in front of the Coddingtown library to leave by 2:45 PM (using carpool lane)

PETALUMA: Lucky at the intersection of Lakeville and Caulfield Ln. Park closest to Payran St. suggested leave by 3:00

As always:

• Please always check your email the night before just in case there are any necessary adjustments to the hike details. Cancellations or any adjustments will be posted by 10 pm the previous evening.

• Give yourself time to find the trail head so that you arrive prior to the scheduled time. That is the time we head out on the trail. It would be disappointing to miss having you on the hike due to late arrival. You will be left behind if you are not ready to head out at the hike start time.

• Duration: 2 hours

• Facilities: Yes

• Dogs?: Well-behaved

• Bring water.  You will need a minimum of 1 liter. 

• OPTIONAL: Bring a snack.

• Bring your smile and great attitude! We are ALL about trail enjoyment while respecting everyone’s time!

See you on the trail!


From Hwy. 101 take the Ignacio Blvd exit and head west. Go 1 mile on Ignacio Blvd. Park just before the entrance gate on the left-hand side of Ignacio Blvd.

    If anyone wants to join me afterwards, I plan on stopping by the Hop Monk Brewery in Novato (over by Costco).
