Throughout this beautiful property you’ll find breathtaking views of the Mayacamas, Fitch Mountain, Lake Sonoma Basin, coastal range and the Russian River. Situated right on the urban edge of Healdsburg, trails wander through oak woodland, serpentine chaparral, and mixed hardwood forests.


Easy: A short paved hiking trail--remnant of a housing project that never came to be (thank goodness)--runs from the trailhead to Russian River Overlook.

Moderate: We're also fond of the dirt trail veers off on the left from the trailhead, past Fox Pond and up to the Ridge Trail.

DIRECTIONS: From Highway 101, take the Dry Creek exit and go east. Turn left (north) on Healdsburg Avenue and go about 1 mile. Turn right (east) onto Parkland Farms Boulevard and travel to the eastern end of the road (about ¾ miles). Turn right onto Bridle Path and look for on-street parking. Trailhead is at the eastern end of Arabian Way.
