  • Taylor Mountain Regional Park and Open Space Preserve is a prominent Santa Rosa landmark, providing panoramic views of the city and distant peaks. The park's 1,100 acres include sweeping grasslands, oak woodlands, several creeks, and habitat for a variety of wildlife. The park has 5.5 miles of unpaved trails and an 18-hole disc golf course.
    The park opened in 2013, when ownership was transferred to Regional Parks from the voter-funded Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation & Open Space District. The interim park entrance is just off of Kawana Terrace. A second entrance and trailhead opened along Petaluma Hill Road, south of Yolanda Avenue, on June 13, 2015. The Petaluma Hill Road entrance includes picnic tables, parking for horse trailers, and a 1.2-mile trail loop with a .2-mile connector to the upper park.
    The park's master plan calls for the eventual development of 17 miles of trails, a "natural play area," hike-in campsites, a visitor center and other features, as funding becomes available.
    The park property historically was used for ranching, and cattle grazing continues in the park.

    Dogs allowed on leash. Open daily from 7 a.m. to sunset.
