Trail Highlights - From Rails to Trails
lThe West County Trail is built along land that was once the Petaluma and Santa
Rosa Railway, a line that linked Petaluma and Santa Rosa with Sebastopol and Forestville.
When completed, the trails will be thirteen miles long. Bicyclists can travel
from the Joe Rodota Trail segment of the West County Trail via Sebastopol streets
to Moore Street, next to Analy High School. The West County Trail is paved for
walking, bicycle riding, and roller skating and runs along an abandoned railroad
line. An unpaved equestrian trail runs parallel to the paved trail. Designated
as a Community Millennium Trail, the trail offers beautiful views of farms, vineyards,
and other agricultural lands. Fall and Spring are particularly beautiful times
of the year to use the trail. Please note that new sections of the trail are being
developed all the time. If you want updated information, please contact us at
