Since 1967, we have been at the forefront of every major public program for multi-use trails advocacy, planning, and implementation in Sonoma County.


Our Mission

The Sonoma County Trails Council (SCTC) works in collaboration with others to advocate, plan, build, and maintain an expansive network of sustainable, shared-use public trails for non-motorized recreation throughout Sonoma County, California.

We are dedicated to leading the effort to bring together hiking, running, cycling, and equestrian groups to advocate for trails in Sonoma County.  

For 48 years we have successfully represented non-motorized trail users in all Sonoma County trail planning efforts resulting in millions of amazing experiences on our trails for the Sonoma County community.
