Jack London State Historic Park and North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park and Open Space Preserve
Join the main Ridge Trail route from a 2.1-mile connector trail through redwood and oak forests. The Ridge Trail then travels north on the Mountain Trail and North Sonoma Mountain Ridge Trail. It passes through forests and grasslands on the eastern and northern flanks of Sonoma Mountain; you’ll travel on a fire road to reach lofty heights with grand views of the Sonoma Valley, then descend on a well-designed narrow trail through beautiful oak woodlands.
