Sonoma County is a wonderful place to walk. It’s good for hiking too, but this blog is about short flat walks. Paths filled with the beauty of nature from the Sonoma Coast to the Sonoma Valley will rejuvenate and relax you.
Please explore this site in picture and tale as we walk Sonoma County.
You will find descriptions of trail conditions, what trees, flowers and birds you might encounter. The best seasons for certain places – don’t miss the wildflowers above Wright’s Beach in May.
Where’s the nearest bathroom, coffee and other exploring opportunities? That information is on each post. Maybe you want a bike ride, horseback riding, fishing, or a longer hike – we try to remember to include that too. Wheelchair access is indicated.
When we travel outside Sonoma County, we find the flat places to walk from San Diego to Yosemite to Redding.
If you can’t find the place, you’re looking for please let me know in comment or Find a Walk. Always feel free to leave a comment or ask a question on any post.
I am a writer of short stories, poems, a play and two someday-they’ll-be novels. I wrote for a newspaper for a few months until it folded. (I am not responsible, really!) I wrote a walking column for the Northbay Times.
The pictures are by my husband and walking companion.
Meanwhile back to walking…

Dogs are allowed at some local California State beaches. (This means on the beach not on the bluffs above the beach.) For a list click Dog Beaches.
