Montini Open Space Preserve

Fourth Street W.
Sonoma, CA 95476
Montini Open Space Preserve
The Montini Open Space Preserve is covered with oak woodland, large rock outcroppings (including an historical rock quarry), and open grassland. The trails offer beautiful views of Sonoma Valley, San Francisco and San Pablo Bays. Protecting the Montini property has helped to maintain the historic character of this ranch that has existed since the time of General Vallejo.

The Preserve trailheads are at 1st St West and 4th St West. The trail system boasts two overlooks, including one that is ADA-accessible. From 4th St West, the trail ascends up a gently sloped path that is designed for wheelchair access before heading upward through an oak woodland to Coyote Point overlooking the city of Sonoma. A wide area for viewing the Sonoma Valley and turning around demarcates where the ADA-accessible part of the trail ends.

The Valley of the Moon Trail, another trail on the Preserve, offers hikers amazing views of the city of Sonoma, Sonoma Mountain, the Sonoma Baylands and other landmarks. After enjoying the Two Goat Point overlook, the high point of the trail, hikers can head east and connect with the Sonoma Overlook Trail by crossing Norrbom Road for a hike of up to four or five miles.
