Recent Trail Reviews

Joe Rodota Trail

Nice, flat, scenic

January, 2017 by wastedoncemore

I was in Sebastopol for business and discovered this trail on my morning run. I ended up staying on it for a few miles. It is fairly strait, paved, and flat. There are occasional benches and trash bins and seemed pretty clean. The city had experienced heavy rain a few days before I was there and the trail had some minor flooding in one spot, but I got past it ok. It was pretty.

Contra Costa Canal Trail

Amazing workout on this trail!

January, 2017 by fredrickson.sales

I run about 5 miles up and down hills on this trail. It's always a heart-pumping workout and I love the scenery along the way.

Marsh Creek Trail

Thumbs up for Marsh Creek Trail (southern half)

November, 2016 by cherylremillard

Road north from Concord Avenue up to Brentwood Boulevard. Trail was flat and very well maintained and clean. Only once was there any question about which way it went and we found it very quickly. Was surprisingly deserted on a late Saturday afternoon. The trail parallels the Creek and passes some fields and parks as well as the backs of houses. There were some underpasses and some places where we had to cross a road, but car traffic was light. I look forward to riding Marsh Creek Trail all the way up to Big Break.

Aquatic Park Trail

Beautiful Park

October, 2016 by kingcity4

Such a beautiful, well-kept park. Great place to walk with my dog.

Laguna Creek Trail

Good Trail for Inline Skating!

September, 2016 by sublimegirl209

There's everything in this trail! We saw rabbits, squirrels, and wildlife. Also, it goes alongside shopping centers and places to eat! Gets a little bit bumpy toward the middle, but this trail is totally worth it!

Dry Creek Parkway

Short and Sunny Trail

September, 2016 by dalamar49

Parked on the South end of the trail. Biked North along the creekside. The trail lacks shade. Bring a hat for shade. Lots of dirt paths branch out from the paved bike path for additional riding.

French Camp Slough Trail

5 mile run

September, 2016 by emmgland

We went on a 5 mile run this morning. It was a nice trail with 75% of it having a river view which was nice! However, there is absolutely no shade so I suggest sunscreen and being done by 11am especially in the summer.

Browns Valley Road Trail

Better than riding in the street.

September, 2016 by ntmo

This is just a little path along the street which can be busy sometimes. More for walkers.

Miners Ravine Trail

Roseville Oasis

September, 2016 by dalamar49

Parked near Darling in the South and biked North to False Ravine Park. Be aware there is some elevation along the way, but its managable.

The sculpture park is a nice stop along the way. Visit the tall, red Cosmos sculpture I've driven by a thousand times.

The part near downtown Roseville is awkward. Be careful biking through Linda Dr as it is a one way street. It looks like Roseville is almost finished with a new segment of the bike path that will replace the detour along Linda Dr.

Overall a nice ride.

Iron Horse Regional Trail

Great Trail for Medium to Long Rides

July, 2016 by pdc624

I have been riding this trail regularly since 2013. I have explored from the southern end in Pleasanton up to Walnut Creek. There is a great variety of scenery and many nice places to stop and take a break and or snack (Danville). Some sections can get quite windy (southern section) but overall this a great place to build your confidence on longer rides.

Joe Rodota Trail

Joe Rodota bike path

July, 2016 by kgeoghegan51

This is a wonderful, flat, easy ride from Santa Rosa to Sebastopol, which also connects in Sebastopol to another ride to Forestville. I clocked over 16 miles round trip riding from Sebastopol to Santa Rosa and back, but I did a little sight seeing in Santa Rosa so that added a couple of extra miles. In Santa Rosa there are multiple entry points, and one can also access the Smart Trail from this pathway. A great ride for families with a wide smooth pathway, and not a lot of traffic along the corridor on a weekday. Next time I will start in Santa Rosa and take the path to Forestville, which I am told adds another 7 or 8 miles to the trip (one way).

Joe Rodota Trail

Flat easy trail

July, 2016 by elementalweavers

Beautiful easy commuter trail between Santa Rosa and Sebastopol Watch out for traffic crossing bike lane from Hwy 12
