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.

The coon trail is currently closed for restoration. It was too steep and hard to follow. I turned around and retraced my steps for a total of 10 miles. An awesome trail run! Beware of spider webs as you run. I was the first on the trail for the day and ran into several.

more like 8+ miles from the parking lot. steep at the summit. nice changing environment. vineyard to redwoods to grassy fields. saw a gaggle off wild turkeys.

Interesting history of Jack London...

There are 30-miles of hiking trails in this State Park, and the highlight is Jack London's burned-down mansion, Wolf House.

Absolutely stunning! A bit muddy in spots from recent rains, but doable and so worth the trek to the summit.
