Over the last few days I’ve made a point of taking the Ogre on trails in some of our parks in Sonoma County along Highway 12. That means in the Sonoma Valley, in the Mayacamas Mountains on the east side of the valley, and the Sonoma Mountains on the west side.
Today’s destination? The summit of Sonoma Mountain at 2463 feet via Jack London State Historical Park. The mountain is a long loaf shape bisecting much of the county from north to south. From the valley on the east side, the park lies a few miles above the town of Glen Ellen. The lower portion of the park encompasses the decaying remains of London’s old Beauty Ranch. The upper portion of the park extends up the side of Sonoma Mountain almost to the summit.
