Jack London State Historic Park, with its vast 1400 scenic acres and over 20 miles of trails is an ideal place to maintain a fitness regimen and this “First Day Hike” is a perfect way to get it in motion. Hike the entire trail or just a portion—friendly docents will guide hikers back at various points along the way. The moderately strenuous 8-mile/4 hour hike will wind through trails rewarding hikers at the top of the summit with sweeping vistas of Sonoma Valley (photo above of 2104 group of hikers).

The “First Day Hike” idea began in 2013 when over 22,000 people hiked in over 400 various hikes, tours and walks throughout all 50 states.
