More Colgan Creek Walking

Colgan Creek, from Stony Point Rd. to Bellevue Ave. is a short flat walk by some open fields and yards. We like it for the raw Santa Rosa and openness. See Colgan Creek Walking.

If you continue along Bellevue, there is almost a walking path. First on the southside and after Elsie Allen High School on the northside. At Dutton Meadow is Lower Colgan Creek Park and the path makes a turn north.

This section is by a housing development. Across the creek is the facility for Canine Companions.

People from the neighborhood were out walking their dogs. Otherwise we had the place to ourselves. While the wide path and creek weren’t exactly park-like or pretty, we enjoyed the view of the mountains.

Colgan Creek Meadow

The whole distance is just over 1.2 miles one-way. Combine with the other section of Colgan Creek at Stony Pt Rd, it’s a four mile roundtrip. If you just want to check it out for walking possibilities, from Dutton Meadow, turn on Mojave and park at the end. Trail is along the creek. This also avoids walking along Bellevue, which can be busy with traffic.

See you on the trail!
