  • Sonoma Overlook Trail offers a pleasant 3 mile hike with views of the Sonoma Valley.  The trailhead is at the entrance to the Mountain Cemetery, just a few blocks north of the Sonoma Plaza. A diverse array of native plants and animals grace the gentle grade trail, and spectacular views of the town of Sonoma, the Sonoma Valley and the Bay Area can be found in the meadow at its top. Docent-led hikes are available for students and adults many weekends. The trail is open to the public for walking during daylight hours.

    The upper trailhead takes off from Toyon Road within the Mountain Cemetery. Dogs, bikes and horses are not permitted on the trail. The lower portion of the Sonoma Overlook Trail is closed through winter.

    • Sonoma Jewel In the Crown hike

      Not outstanding but best you will find near downtown Sonoma and Plaza. Easy to moderate hike with several starting and ending points. For first time try the entrance just past the Veterans Building...

    • Nice, Easy Hike

      It's an easy, short, well-marked hike with great views all the way up and at the top. We were told you can see the Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day (it wasn't).

    • Lovely morning hike

      We took our coffees to go up this quick little hike and it was the most magical way to spend the morning. Loved seeing the views, wildflowers, trees and friendly people along the way!
