The Petaluma Trails consist of 5 trails, each one through a unique and scenic part of historic Petaluma. There is a two-mile circular loop through Shollenberger Park and a one-mile trail that links the park to Petaluma Marina. A nice paved path 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 before 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 trailhead. There is a large pond for fishing (bluegill mostly).
Numerous segments of the trail run through parks, where parking is available: Helen Putnam Regional Park (411 Chileno Valley Road; note that there is a parking fee), Shollenberger Park (1400 Cader Lane), Prince Park (2301 E. Washington Street) and Leghorns Park (690 Sonoma Mountain Parkway).
