Here we see a portion of the Sonoma County "At Risk" Map for 1994 prepared by the Greenbelt Alliance. Sonoma Mountain is the area of light green (signifying low risk, but unprotected, greenbelt) in the center of the main urban areas of the county: Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park and Cotati, Petaluma, and Sonoma. Lafferty Ranch is the dark green rectangle (signifying secure greenbelt) north of Petaluma near the center of that light green area. The small dark green spot NNW of Lafferty is the Fairfield-Osborne Preserve. The larger dark green area NNE of Lafferty is Jack London State Historic Park, plus some adjoining open space associated with a state mental health facility.
Here is a portion of the USGS
topographical map for the "Glen Ellen" segment
showing the boundaries and topographical features of
Lafferty Ranch (outlined in violet) and its immediate
surroundings. The road in the lower left is Sonoma
Mountain Road. This map is rather old, circa 1980, so
some details are not up to date.
