360 degree views of Lake Sonoma and Dry Creek Valley
Open Weekends.
      Head to the tallest hill above Lake Sonoma and Dry Creek Valley. Walk one hundred feet straight off its steepest side, then ascent another twenty feet straight up. You are now at the Lake Sonoma overlook. The most incredible 360 degree view the Russian River has to offer.

Getting there: view the area map. The scenic route is to take Dry Creek Road thorough the Dry Creek Valley from just north of Healdsburg. This will connect you with Skaggs Spring Road and lead you to Lake Sonoma. Once there continue up the hill and follow the signs to the Overlook. From the base of the hill you will take the first left and then the first right. See map of the roads around Lake Sonoma.
