Have You Met Jack?

Part of the allure of Sonoma Valley is this Park, boasting over 26 miles of trails across 1400 acres including stunning vistas and the historic buildings from the time when famous writer/adventurer Jack London called this his home. Jack London State Historic Park was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962.It is a particularly distinctive State Park—a diverse landscape to explore, a museum and cultural legacy to discover and a magical place to experience. From the ruins of a 19th Century Winery to a 2,000 year old Redwood Tree, 14 feet in diameter, to the cottage where Jack London wrote, you feel a certain energy whispering throughout the Park. While the history is an important draw, many are enticed simply by the natural resources. Jack London called it “Beauty Ranch” for good reason. Once you absorb the views from Sonoma Mountain, discover the 80 acres of an historic but still bountiful Orchard or the lake Jack London created, navigate the varied trails, you will know why this is considered one of the gems in this Valley of the Moon.

This history is encapsulated in either a short half-mile loop that takes less than an hour or a more leisurely two-hour walk that affords visitors a chance to see the historic buildings and exhibits highlighting London’s life, including his innovative experiments with methods of sustainable farming. You can explore on your own or take a tour led by a docent, which offers an even deeper look into Jack London’s life and times.
