"A 14-mile rails-to-trails system runs from the cities of Forestville to Sebastopol to Santa Rosa along an abandoned railroad rightof- way. The Joe Rodota Trail is the section of the trail that links Sebastopol to Santa Rosa. The paved multi-use trail is named for the first director of the Sonoma County Regional Parks. The entire trail is 8.5 miles long. This walk begins at the west end of the trail in Sebastopol and heads east along the first 0.75-mile length of the trail. The route leads through grasslands and a thick riparian forest in the Laguna de Santa Rosa wetlands under valley oak, willow, Oregon ash, and black walnut trees. Throughout the hike are sweeping views of dairy pastures, vineyards, creeks, and the Santa Rosa Plain. This is a popular trail for hiking, biking, jogging, dog walking, and bird watching."
