Glenn Ellen to Bennett Valley

Glenn Ellen to Bennet Valley
Avant St Helena

Driving between Sonoma and Santa Rosa? I recommend this short scenic drive through Glenn Ellen and Bennett Valley. Heading north on Warm Springs Rd, head through the town of Glenn Ellen and then jump on Bennett Valley Rd and head into Santa Rosa through some beautiful landscapes and smooth fresh paved road. The video below was taken while driving the Audi A4 Avant and what an exhilarating experience.

This detour will also likely cut off some travel time versus the standard Hwy 12 route if you are heading into central Santa Rosa area. Even if it is out of your way, the curves and the scenery are worth it. Here are a couple of recommendations along this path…

Glenn Ellen Star – Fantastic little restaurant and a long wine list.
