We walk the West County Trail so often and it seems so familiar that I forgot to ever report on the northern section from Ross Station Rd to Forestville. Even after we made a trip there in February to report on that part.
When we lived in Guerneville, we used to start the trail at Ross Station and usually headed south. We were deterred from the north trail because it didn’t go through to Forestville and a generous dad had built a noisy motorcross course for his kids (or himself) right next to the trail.
The trail is paved. Besides the backyards, the terrain is more riparian than the other sections of the trail that feature fields, berry patches and vineyards. I’m not sure if some of the trail might be flooded in a rainy winter. (You remember what a rainy season is, right?)
