Did Someone say Cheese? Come Discover Sonoma County's Cheese Trail

Sonoma County's Cheese Trail

Explore the Sonoma County's Cheese Trail and spend an afternoon or a weekend soaking in the beauty of the area while sampling some of the best, hand-crafted cheeses.  The trail, which winds through about a hundred miles of canyons, pastures, and oak-covered hills, linking close to 30 farms and creameries, allows you to connect directly with artisan cheesemakers, see where your favorite cheeses are crafted, and buy straight from the producers.
