Lower Russian River Trail (Proposed)

What & Why?

The lower Russian River’s River Road / Highway 116 is a high traffic, high speed roadway with a history of multiple bicycle and pedestrian accidents.

Regional Parks is proposing to develop a 9-mile long multi-use trail along the Russian River between Odd Fellows Park Road and Duncans Mills, which would provide a safe walking and cycling alternative for commuters and visitors traveling this congested corridor. 

What Next?

The County has applied for grant funds to complete a feasibility study for the Lower Russian River Trail. The feasibility study will include getting public input from the community and stakeholders, evaluating existing site conditions and roads, mapping, identifying opportunities and constraints, and recommending a preferred trail route.
