“There was no doubt in my mind at 9 AM on Saturday March 31 that it was too rainy to walk “The Hills of Sebastopol,” a variation on Richard Nichol’s “cardio walk.” It was pouring downtown and rained like that for almost two hours.

There will come another nice day when you can do this walk, so here’s the proposed route. It includes some steep ups and downs and most are broken by some level or easier walking. You’ll never think of Sebastopol as flat again! Try it out and tell me what you think.”

From The Plaza:
  1. Take McKinley to North Main and cross at the light to the west side.
  2. Turn right on North Main.
  3. Left on Wilton
  4. Left on S. High
  5. Right on Calder
  6. Left on Parquet, continue to the cul de sac and back down
  7. Right on Calder
  8. Right on Vine
  9. Left on Maple
  10. Right on S. High
  11. Cross Hayden at the school’s driveway, walk through the front parking lot and the rear parking lot [east side of building] to the stairway uphill.
  12. Take the small steps up to Ethan.
  13. Left on Ethan
  14. Right on Litchfield.
  15. Right on Fircrest
  16. Left on McFarlane
  17. Right on Meadowlark, over the hill
  18. Continue on Jewell heading north
  19. Right on Woodland
  20. Left on McFarlane
  21. Left on Walnut
  22. Right on Jewell
  23. Right on Palm
