  • 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 when famous writer/adventurer Jack London called this his home. 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. The park's 1400 acres include the Beauty Ranch, Cottage, House of Happy Walls Museum, Wolf House ruins, and more than 26 miles of trails.

    We recommend that you allow 3 hours to visit. The park is located in Glen Ellen, California, about 1.5 hours north of San Francisco, in Sonoma County between the towns of Sonoma and Santa Rosa. Free Docent-guided tours are available on weekends. Park Hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 364 days a year (closed Christmas) Museum Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cottage Hours: 12 noon to 4:00 p.m.
