Feeling the need for a mid week walk? I am! This is an easy flat walk through the laguna - The Laguna de Santa Rosa trail is Regional Parks’ newest trail, offering a unique opportunity to see the biologically diverse landscape of Sonoma County’s largest freshwater wetland. The trail runs on the east side of the Laguna channel between Highway 12 and Occidental Road, with trailheads and parking areas located off of both roads. A 1.8-mile multi-use trail is open to hikers, cyclists and equestrians and includes an overlook area with benches and Laguna and vineyard views. Paved with crushed stone, the trail is fully accessible for wheelchair users. An unpaved .6-mile pedestrian-only path loops off of that segment toward the riparian cover along the channel.
Dogs on a leash are welcome - there is no park pass needed for this trail.
There is a parking lot at either end of the trail. We'll meet on the Occidental Road side because traffic in & out of Hwy 12 can be challenging at times.
