Ridge, jog around the town, or around our famous
Fitch Mountain (a 6 mile loop that follows the Russian River, through
redwoods, past summer cottages and skirting the mountain that is the

and downs. Or perhaps a flatter jog is for you.
The Magnolia Loop is a
paved 4 mile loop (from door back to door), past a lovely winery, and
