Sebastopol Walks (3rd Edition)

Sebastopol Walks

The book that inspired the Sebastopol Walks series is now available in its 3rd edition at Copperfield’s Books, and from walk leaders on the monthly walks. This guidebook includes maps and details for ten walks of varying lengths within the City of Sebastopol and suggests other great walks in eight Sonoma County parks, with additional suggestions for destinations elsewhere the San Francisco Bay Area.

Funds for publishing the 3rd edition were raised by members of the community through two Dinner Walks, in which participants walked between courses to a number of local restaurants. A big thank you to Sarah Gurney, Sebastopol City Council member, for organizing the well-attended Dinner Walks, the local restaurants, and to all who attended.
