  • 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.
