A half-day hike with steep elevation gain and views of beautiful Sonoma County vineyards.

Hike to Gunsight Rock through Hood Mountain Regional Park to get a view overlooking Sonoma and Napa Valley. In order to get to the trailhead take Highway 12 to Los Alamos Rd, the road will then turn into Timberline Dr, this will take you to the trailhead. There is a parking fee of $8.

From the parking area, go over the foot bridge and follow the creek upward. When you reach the fire road, cross the road. At one point you must cross a creek while on Goodspeed Trail which has very little water in it. You can use either the big rocks or fallen tree to cross. The path then turns into one single dusty path with some occasional steep and rocky parts.
