Review of Helen Putnam Park

Helen Putnam Park
Ranked #4 of 60 things to do in Petaluma
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 February 2017

This is a fine place to have easy or more vigorous hikes - once you get to the tops of the hills you have a great view of the Petaluma Valley. Every season has it's treasures here. I love this place. It is not wheel chair accessible unfortunately. Some trails are very tame. Beautiful, unspoiled county, a lake, and creeks in the right season.

I've been hiking here for 9 years and will for as long as I can. There are varying degrees of difficulty in the trails from level to 60 degree incline ( I call it the wall). It is a short 2-3 hundred feet up to the top of the world and flat up top so you can chose many trails ,all down and around the various trails, some short, some a little longer. GREAT place do
it

Just a few days ago, a few friends went hiking here on a lovely sunny day after much rain. The green hills were spectacular with livestock in the distance. Mossy trees with disfigured trunks were great photo opportunities. There are many trails to explore and we intend to see them all.

Beautiful park, but the automated parking permit system is cumbersome. The machine kept spitting out our dollar bills. Nice park close to Petaluma but out in the country.
