Discover how great you will feel when you start the new year off on the right foot with the First Day Hike choosing between two great options:
Option1: 4th Annual Hike to the Summit of the Park and then back to the Jack London Park parking lot. This will be a 8 mile moderately strenuous guided hike. Be ready to have your picture taken at the top of the mountain enjoying the views
Option 2: From the summit of the park continue on your guided hike over Sonoma Mountain into the beautiful new North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park & Open Space Preserve, a moderately strenuous 9 mile hike to the North Sonoma Regional Park parking lot on Sonoma Mountain Road. NOTE: If you choose this option it will be important for you to make provisions to carpool, leaving one car at the North Sonoma Regional Park so you can shuttle yourself back to Jack London Park at the end of the hike. This is our second year that we have offered this collaborative hike between Jack London State Historic Park and Sonoma County Regional Parks! What an opportunity to hike in two beautiful parks on the first day of the year!
By participating in our First Day Hikes you will also participate in the national “First Day Hikes” movement sponsored by America’s State Parks, offering an opportunity to kick off your new year with a healthy start. The January 1, 2017 hike for health at Jack London State Historic Park is part of a collaborative national fitness event with California State Parks.
Our park is serious about offering you opportunities to get into shape while enjoying the beauty and exhilaration of the outdoors. Throughout the year we will be offering a series of hikes for all fitness levels that will make exercise easy when you are with a fun group of like-minded people and a knowledgeable leader. Be sure to sign up on our mailing list to receive future notices of upcoming hikes, classes and events.
The First Day hike is designed for all fitness levels with guides to help you return to the parking lot at any time. Simply stated it's designed to be fun!
