Jack London State Historic Park is a memorial to writer and adventurer Jack London, who made his home at the site from 1905 until his death in 1916. The park was once part of the famous writers Beauty Ranch. The park contains the cottage residence where he wrote books, short stories, articles and letters while he oversaw various agricultural enterprises. After Londons death, his wife, Charmian, continued to live in the cottage until her death in 1955. It was her wish that the ranch be preserved in memory of Jack London and his work. The historic park is at 2400 London Ranch Road in Glen Ellen, about 20 minutes north of Sonoma. Dogs are not allowed on backcountry trails. Dogs are allowed on a leash in the Historic Area only. Dogs are not permitted beyond the silos or inside the museum.
Overall the hike was wonderful.
Next time, I would hike the loop clockwise. We completed the hike counter clockwise causing the steeper elevation difference in the decent versus the assent. It was tough going down hill.
Also, although high enough in elevation to have the view, the surrounding trees and vegetation hindered the view.
The weather was delightful and the canopy of the trees keep things shaded and cool.
The loop wound up being 10.3 versus 8.3 miles, so take into consideration.
Well groomed trails.
