Crane Creek is a stream in Sonoma County, California, USA which rises in the northern Sonoma Mountains.[2] This watercourse flows through Crane Canyon and the Crane Creek Regional Park [3] situated on the northwestern flank of Sonoma Mountain. Crane Creek forms a confluence with Hinebaugh Creek in the city of Rohnert Park; thereafter, the channelized [4] Hinebaugh Creek flows westerly to discharge to the Laguna de Santa Rosa. Hiking access to the upper Crane Creek reaches is from Roberts Road off of Petaluma Hill Road.[5]
