An extension of the West County Trail that connects to downtown Forestville now is open, according to a news release from Sonoma County Regional Parks.
The .2-mile extension connects the trail’s northern end at Parajo Lane to Front Street in Forestville for the first time in the trail’s history. An 8-foot-wide raised boardwalk also was constructed on a section of the extension so cyclists and pedestrians can access the trail despite seasonal flooding.
The West County Trail is part of a 13-mile network that links Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Graton and Forestville.
