"A pleasant passage through rural, western Sonoma County, the West County Trail offers hikers an opportunity to experience the area’s venerable apple industry. Connecting the small communities of Forestville and Graton, the hike is a unique combination of historical, agricultural, and natural highlights. Explore the lush countryside along the West County Trail, which is a “rails to trails” conversion. The trail was once a rail line belonging to the Petaluma & Santa Rosa Railroad. It connected the small communities of Graton and Forestville. Now it is a very scenic trail that runs through the heart of the West County, passing vineyards, apple orchards, wineries, and small farmhouses in a peaceful, rustic setting as well as offering a close look at one of the last apple- processing plants in the county."
