Spring Creek, in Sonoma County, California, is a 6.0-mile-long (9.7 km)[2] stream that rises in the northern part of the Sonoma Mountains[3] within Annadel State Park, draining the western slopes of Taylor Mountain and feeding into Matanzas Creek below the Matanzas Creek Reservoir.[4]

The waters of Spring Creek ultimately reach the Pacific Ocean just south of Jenner, California by way of Matanzas Creek, Santa Rosa Creek, the Laguna de Santa Rosa, Mark West Creek, and the Russian River.
