The Petaluma Trails consist of 5 trails, each one through a unique and scenic part of historic Petaluma. There is a two-mile cicular loop through Shollenberger wetland park and a one mile trail that links the park to Petaulma Marina. A nice paved bikepath runs alongside Lynch Creek, which has nice trees along its banks and a good view of Sonoma Mountain.
A scenic trail runs around the perimeter of a residential section of the town, and running though the campus of Santa Rosa Junior College and ending at Prince Park.
Helen Putnam Regional Park is a 216 acre park offering panoramic views of southern Sonoma County and northern Marin County. The park has trails for hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. A gazebo, picnic area, and children's playground are located at the trail head. There is a large pond for fishing (bluegill mostly).
