They fashioned the glasslike obsidian into points (arrowheads), choppers, scrapers, and other tools. Remnants of worked obsidian are abundant and will be found almost anywhere in the park....More

Located in the heart of Santa Rosa, this park offers some of the most challenging mountain biking around. Plus, the views from the top are amazing. If you're hiking, keep a watchful eye for mountain bikers charging down trails at 30 mph.
