Jack London State Historic Park is known for being home to the famous author, and is a beautiful hiking opportunity with a network of trails that range from an easy ten minute stroll to twenty miles of back country hills. For a full trail map, visit the website.
I have been going to the park for many years, and remember the wonder of first walking through the sheltering grove of trees opening up to looming ruins like Sleeping Beauty’s castle. The area has a quiet, haunted feel to it with sweeping hills, vineyards, and historical buildings peering out waiting to reveal their secrets.
