Hike 14 – Laguna de Santa Rosa

This was a squeeze in on the way to other things, which is nice to be able to do. Not everything has to be a big Destination Hike with a Capital H!

Turns out, the Laguna de Santa Rosa is Sonoma County’s largest freshwater wetland. When it rains, the trails – along with much of the plain, depending on the amount of rain – can flood, but that hasn’t been too much of an issue this year, although surprisingly there was one muddy spot. There are parking lots off of Highway 12 and Occidental Road, and the main trail runs between them. There are also a couple of options to loop, so it wasn’t a straight out and back (not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

There are a few bits of trail, but most is wider fire road. Some lovely oaks, a little pond, views of Mount St. Helena and some balloon traffic – quite a lovely morning!
