See What you’ve been missing from the driver’s seat. Be a tourist in your own small town and walk where you’ve never walked before.

  • Unless noted, all walks begin and end at the Sebastopol Plaza, located at Weeks Way and McKinley Street in downtown Sebastopol
  • Walks are easy and mostly flat on good surfaces, with a few mild climbs.  Please consult with your doctor before starting a new exercise regimen.
  • Walking or hiking shoes are recommended.
  • Dress in layers
  • Bring water, snacks (or lunch if noted), sunscreen and a hat.
  • Walks may be modified by the leader
  • Walkers may leave the group after notifying the walk leader.
  • Dogs on leash are generally welcome and exceptions will be noted in the walk announcement


Plaza parking is limited to two hours, but longer-term parking is available at the Laguna Park Way lot next to the Sebastopol Cinemas (across the street from Whole Foods), and limited spaces may be available on Petaluma Avenue and McKinley Street next to the theater.


Rain cancels. Any other changes of schedule will be noted a few days before the event on this site and by email if you are a subscriber.
