Laguna de Santa Rosa Trail
On the Laguna de Santa Rosa Trail, visitors can discover the biologically diverse landscape of Sonoma County’s largest freshwater wetland. Internationally recognized for its ecological importance, the Laguna’s marshes, vernal pools, riparian woodland and valley oak savannah are rich habitat for wildlife and plants, including the special-status California tiger salamander, Sebastopol meadowfoam and Lobb’s aquatic buttercup.

This 1.8-mile multi-use trail is open to hikers and equestrians and includes an overlook with benches and Laguna and vineyard views. The trail runs on the east side of the Laguna channel between Highway 12 and Occidental Road, with parking areas along both roads. Visitors walking north on the trail from the Highway 12 entrance will enjoy views of Mount Saint Helena. An unpaved .6-mile pedestrian-only segment loops off the trail toward the riparian cover along the channel. In rainy weather, the Laguna transforms from a dry to flooded landscape, and trail sections may be closed.
