This would be one of the highlight multipurpose trails of Sonoma County if the homeless hadn't taken it over near Santa Rosa.

This section of trail goes from Santa Rosa to Sebastopol. The trail is smooth, flat and plenty wide for runners, walkers, skaters and cyclists to easily and comfortably pass each other in both directions. It parallels hwy 12 but is far enough away that the...More

This is a flat, paved trail about 8 miles long that was once a rail line. It is an easy bike ride but rather dull and boring. In Santa Rosa the area next to the trail is usually inhabited by homeless people. They seem harmless,...More

Stroll from town to town on this trail, through countryside and residential neighborhoods. Flat and scenic.

Loved this walking and biking trail which sometime winds into a town like Graton taking a rider onto the streets for a short distance. This was once a railroad. There are several spots to join the trail.

Love this bike trail, it is as easy or hard as you want it to be, it can be very quite and no cars, it can be parallel to highway 12. If you like to bike try this path.
