  • Anadell Trione State Park (4 to 10 miles).  With nearly 10 miles of trails, Spring Lake is one of Sonoma County's most popular walking and hiking destinations. The paved Spring Lake Loop is an easy circuit around the lake. The main trail is a 2.3-mile paved loop around the lake with views of forested hillsides. The trail is wide, with plenty of room for side-by-side walking.. The elevation is mostly flat, with a brief incline to the main dam. Unpaved trails such as Fisherman’s Trail and the Horse Loop intertwine with the paved trail and offer less-traveled routes around the lake.
