From Rails to Trails
The West County Regional & Joe
Rodota Trails are built along land that was once the Petaluma and Santa Rosa
Railway, a line that linked Petaluma and Santa Rosa with Sebastopol and
Forestville. The trails total fourteen miles long. The trails are paved for
walking, bicycle riding, and roller skating. An unpaved equestrian trail runs
parallel to the paved trail. Designated as a Community Millennium Trail by
Former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, 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 trails. Please note that
the most northern trail section in Forestville has not been completed. For
