A chance to see the western hills from a new perspective on this walk led by Sarah Gurney, Sebastopol City Council member and Sebastopol Walks founder. The new Laguna de Santa Rosa Trail (not yet officially open) has become my favorite local outing.

Come out into the Laguna and take a look at Sebastopol from the Santa Rosa Plain on this new 5 mile walk. Discover the entrance to the City’s Laguna Preserve, cross the seasonal bridge, explore “Barlow Field,” circle Kelly Marsh and experience the new trail to Occidental Road.

Bring sunscreen, a hat, comfortable shoes, and a snack. Meet at the Plaza at 9 AM, leaving at 9:15 AM, and returning by noon.

No hills, no dogs, no docents, no restrooms. This out-and-back is a walk you will want to repeat.
