What & Why?
Regional Parks is proposing to develop a 13-mile paved trail connecting Petaluma and Sebastopol. This off-road trail would provide bicycling, walking, jogging and other recreational and commuting opportunities for residents of Petaluma, Sebastopol, and unincorporated areas such as Hessel and Cunningham.
Trails connecting cities promote healthy communities, access to schools and businesses, the reduction of traffic and greenhouse gases, and are a safer alternative to bicycling or walking on roads.
Currently the Feasibility Study is underway to determine the best route. The study includes public outreach, evaluating the existing site conditions and roads, mapping, and preliminary title search.
Future public meetings and workshops will allow the public to provide input on the trail alignment. To be automatically alerted, please sign up for updates by clicking on the “Subscribe now!” text on the right side of this web page.
