Highlights

Highlight: Old Toll Road to Highland Springs
If you live in the North Bay Area and want to get away from civilization for a while and get some dirt on your tires, Old Toll Road from Hopland to Highland Springs Reservoir will take you through the volcanic landscape of the Mayacamas range; mixed chaparral and oak trees, stacked lava and serpentinite rock formations, soaring raptors (Red-Tailed Hawks are frequently seen here), and great views down to Hopland and Lake County. This is a great backcountry route that winds through the hills and ends at a beautiful reservoir called Highland Springs --great for swimming, paddling, and fishing.
