Start the New Year on the right foot! On January 1, 2016, Jack London State Historic Park will offer its third annual First Day Hike, part of a collaborative national fitness event with California State Parks. The First Day Hike is also the inaugural event to begin “Discover Your Call of the Wild,” a year-long series of events at Jack London State Historic Park marking the 2016 Centennial of Jack London’s passing. This fun and robust way to kick off the New Year with a healthy start is the first in a series of Fitness Hikes at the Park for 2016. Jack London State Historic Park, with its vast 1400 scenic acres and over 29 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 volunteers 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.
