Santa Rosa to Brush Creek Walking Connection

Some of you know that the Santa Rosa and Brush Creeks meet at the Flat Rocks. This is reputed to be the birthplace of Santa Rosa.

The City of Santa Rosa just completed a wide path from Mission Blvd to the trail along Brush Creek. This picture is taken near Streamside Place off of Hwy 12 in Rincon Valley. (Mike and Cole will not always be there to greet you.)

The trail is paved and wide – a new standard for city trails? There’s a view of the mountains and the creek is well below the path.

Besides an easier and safer way to get around this part of town – this path provides easy access from the Mission Blvd Plaza (Muffin St and McDonalds) to the neighborhoods squeezed between the creek and Hwy 12.

As we are finding with many new trails – this one just opened last week – it has become active.

The trail at the Mission Plaza is accessible at Mission Blvd or at several places along the parking lot. The connection to Brush Creek is a pathway along Streamside Place and then Flat Rock Circle to a bridge over Brush Creek. A park along Santa Rosa Creek is still in the works (?)
