Description [Suggest Changes]

This trail has a good bit of everything, from thick forest, a creek, rolling hills, steep action up a mountainside and vistas of the beautiful Bennett Valley.

You'll enter in a thicket of trees and soon cross a bridge over South Fork Matanza's Creek. This will spit you out of the shade and straight into very open fields of rolling hills. As you wind your way through these hills, take a few moments to look back and enjoy Bennett Valley's lovely scenery. You'll reach the top of these gentle hills and face steep (but shaded) switchbacks. Once again, there's a gap between the trees so be sure you take a few minutes to really let the beauty of the view sink in. Sonoma truly has its treasures, and the sights here are among my favorites!
