Nice drive thru many wineries to the top to view the lake. Parking there was free and there were picnic tables. We could see the marina below with many boats.
We were told by a patron at KINsmoke to take the drive. It has a beautiful look out with a restroom, if you need it. We drove down to the marina/beach, but they wanted $10 to park and we weren't staying, so we passed. Didn't even know there was a Lake Sonoma!!

We haven't had the chance to try out any of the trails but every time we visit Sonoma County we make sure we drive up above the dam and into the Rockpile AVA for some great scenery.
We arrived before the visitor's center opened but had a map from our hotel. The trail locations are a little confusing but when we finally found what we were looking for it was AMAZING!
