Located on 1,400 acres, Jack London State Historic Park – named for the author of works like "The Call of the Wild" and "White Fang" – features 20 miles of trails. The land, which London referred to as "Beauty Ranch," also features his old home, a museum about London and his family, and London's gravesite, where he was laid to rest at the age of 40.
Recent visitors were delighted with the Jack London State Historic Park, noting its beauty and all of the interesting anecdotes they learned about the writer's adventurous life. Others said the mix of literature and outdoors is wonderful, though some warned that the hiking can be a bit challenging, especially on hot days.
Open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Jack London State Historic Park charges $10 per vehicle entry and $5 per visitor entering on bike or on foot. General admission to London's former home costs $4. The park is located near the Benziger Family Winery in Sonoma's Glen Ellen. For more information, visit the park's website.
