The Bohemian Highway

Aug 29, 2016 02:42PM ● By Elena Hutslar

The two-lane roadway known as the Bohemian Highway winds across 10 miles of western Sonoma County, through towering redwoods, serene pastures, rocky ravines, and the tiny towns of Monte Rio, Occidental, and Freestone. This relatively short stretch of roadway is one of the most scenic and pastoral drives to be found in California. You will find organic farms and wineries, specialty nurseries, and all kinds of innovative shops and restaurants. It's also a gateway for superb outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, and more. Driving the Bohemian Highway can take less than an hour or several days, depending on your pace and number of stops. Attractions to consider: the towns of Forestville and Guerneville along the Russian River, Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve and Korbel Champagne Cellars.


From US 101 N, take the Occidental Rd and Graton Rd exit towards the Bohemian Highway in Occidental.
