Beauty Ranch and London Lake at Jack London State Historic Park This loop walk will include portions of the Beauty Ranch, the London's experimental farm, vineyard views, a redwood forest walk, and London Lake. The walk will also take one to start-offs for several additional trails covering the bulk of Jack London SHP. Jack London's "Beauty Ranch" comprises about 1400 acres stretching from the floor of the "Valley of the Moon" onto the eastern slope of Sonoma Mountain in the heart of Sonoma County's wine country. The park includes the remains of a number of historic structures comprising the living and operating features of Jack's beloved ranch. This park contains Lake London, London's vineyard and orchard, wonderful mixed forest, oak woodlands and meadow-grasslands vistas typical of the region north of the San Francisco Bay with an added feel of early California. Jack London SHP has over 10 miles of trails and fire-roads traversing through the park. Trails are available for hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian use. Depending on the trails chosen, elevation changes range from 600 to 2,300 feet. The Park suggests carrying lots of water on trails, watching for ticks, rattlesnakes, mountain lions and poison oak. Dress for the season.

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