How is Shiloh Ranch Regional Park connected to the Laguna de Santa Rosa? Explore this beautiful park with Regional Parks and Laguna Foundation naturalists to find out!

 

Meeting at Shiloh Ranch Regional Park in the northeast part of the Laguna watershed, participants will adventure into this rugged landscape in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains and discover local flora, fauna, and watershed connectivity. During the three hours, the group will cover five miles (unpaved trails with ~400’ elevation change), stopping occasionally to enjoy the sweeping views, to observe, share, and discuss.

 

This 850-acre park includes oak woodlands, mixed evergreen forest, canyons, rolling hills, a shaded creek, and a pond. Much of the park burned in the October 2017 Tubbs Fire. Burned trees and other impacts are clearly visible in some areas. Hiking here offers a unique opportunity to see a landscape regenerating after wildfire.

 

This outing will take place rain or shine and is made possible through a partnership with the Laguna Foundation and Sonoma County Regional Parks.
