Experiencing the Wild Sonoma Coast Along the Kortum Trail

"You don't have to go that far to feel like you are on the edge of the world," Kerry Fugett of Sonoma County Conservation Action says about the northern Sonoma coastline. The pristine conditions along this area are a result of decades of work, from activists like Bill Kortum, to protect access to the coastline and keep it wild and rugged. Kortum founded Sonoma County Conservation Action, and co-founded the Sonoma Land Trust. The Kortum Trail, named after the legendary activist and part of the California Coastal Trail, offers stark views of the shore and rolling hills of the Sonoma coast.
