Sonoma Valley Trail (Proposed)

What & Why?

The Sonoma Valley Trail is a proposed 13-mile paved trail along the scenic Highway 12 corridor between Santa Rosa and Sonoma. The scenic corridor offers fantastic views of Sonoma Valley but lacks a safe and separated pathway for pedestrians and bicyclists traveling north and south.

A feasibility study was completed to help facilitate the trail development. This trail project would develop a separated pathway connecting Sonoma with Santa Rosa.

What's Next?

The Final Sonoma Valley Trail Feasibility Study was completed and released in February 2016. The feasibility study identified a preferred trail alignment, and recommended completing the paved trail in phases as public funding becomes available.

Regional Parks is actively searching for funding opportunities to complete the 13-mile paved trail.
