“A gorgeous route including views of Bennett Valley on the way up to the peak of Sonoma Mountain.”— Kevin Bonner
The switchbacks will end but the trail will still give you some elevation on the side of a hill range. There are many varied species of trees and flowers through this area until you're at the foot of the peak. Once you can see the radio towers at the peak of Sonoma Mountain, give it one last push up and around the corner (probably the steepest part of the trip!) and you'll be rewarded with awesome sweeping views of Sonoma County, including Glen Ellen, Mt. St. Helena, and so much more.
Well worth a day's efforts!
