Hood Mountain Regional Park Overview
Hood Mountain Regional Park features 1,750 acres of wilderness for hiking, biking and equestrian activities. Rugged and steep, most of the hiking trails are for experienced hikers in good condition. One of the most difficult and rewarding of Sonoma County summit hikes, the 4- to 5-mile trek up Hood Mountain summit (2,730’) offers views of the Golden Gate Bridge on clear days. The trail distances to Hood Mountain summit, as well as difficulty levels, vary depending on whether one enters the park from the north or south entrances or from the adjacent Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. Day use only, 8 AM to sunset, with parking fee.
