If you live in the Healdsburg area and are coming here for vacation, there are so many hiking opportunities to explore in the area. Whether you’re a beach hiker or you enjoy a more rough hiking experience, Healdsburg has an excellent selection of parks and trails to suit your needs.

Riverfront Regional Park
Located right off of the beautiful Russian River, Riverfront Park is just a short distance from Healdsburg. The park features two-mile loops which take hikers around Lake Benoist, as well as a smaller fork which will take hikers out to the beach on the Russian River. There is also a half-mile trail which features gorgeous redwood trees. The trail that features the redwood trees also contains a beautiful picnic area, complete with volleyball nets, a horseshoe pit, barbecues, tables, and a full restroom. The park contains about three and a half miles of trails. It’s a great spot for bikers, hikers, and horseback riders. Park entry is seven dollars.

Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Beach
Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Beach, located off of the Russian River, has full amenities including an area for swimming, picnic areas, restrooms, and a par course. During the summer, there is a seasonal dam that is used to build a swimming area just south of the Memorial Bridge. The beach is fully staffed with lifeguards too. During July the park is host to the famous Healdsburg Water Carnival, which is widely renowned for its vendors.

Parking lots are small, but there is limited street side parking during busy days. Dogs are permitted as long as they remain leashed and under their owner’s control. Wheelchairs are available upon request for visitors who may need them. Park entry is seven dollars.
