Sonoma County Regional Parks The Joe Rodota Trail is 7.5 miles of paved trail running between Santa Rosa and Sebastopol.

The trail starts at the pedestrian/bicycle bridge intersection with the Prince Memorial Greenway (between West 3rd Street and Railroad Street), southwest of the Marriott Courtyard Hotel. It ends near the intersection of Mill Station Road and Highway 116 in Sebastopol.

Access is located off the following public streets: Roberts Avenue, Dutton Avenue, Stony Point Road, Wright Road, Sebastopol Road, Merced Avenue, Llano Road, Petaluma Avenue, High School Road, Cleveland Avenue, Ellis Court, DuFranc Avenue, Hurlbut Avenue, and Highway 116.

Sections of the trail run along an abandoned railroad line. The trail offers an opportunity for families with young children to experience an outdoor outing for walking, bicycle riding, horseback riding, and roller skating.

The trail meanders along agricultural ranches, and the Laguna of Santa Rosa. There are signs of the historic railroad throughout the property.

Three bridges are on top of the old train trestles. The trail is especially popular in the spring with a burst of color from wildflowers. The trail is an excellent place for year-round bird watching.

Leashed dogs are welcome on all parts of the trail.

It’s easy, it’s pretty and hiking its 1.8-mile length will burn off just enough calories to allow you to splurge on a meal at The Barlow, a complex housing more than three dozen food and drink producers and artist studios. The Laguna de Santa Rosa Trail, which opened in 2012, stretches from Highway 12 to Occidental Road just outside Sebastopol, skirting the Laguna de Santa Rosa, Sonoma’s largest freshwater wetland. more »

You know where they are on the map, but when’s the last time you explored these Sonoma County gems with your four-legged friend? Start in Petaluma, a delightful community with an old-fashioned downtown and, in 9-acre Rocky Memorial Dog Park, one of the largest and most amenity-laden fenced canine playgrounds in the state. more »

This West Sonoma County hub is fast becoming a DogTrekker favorite, particularly since the advent of The Barlow, a dog- and family-friendly shopping district with over 38 outlets connecting consumers with local artists, food producers, winemakers, distillers, and brewers. Tree-lined streets, grassy areas and lots of outdoor seating make it a fun place to explore with your dog at your side. more »
