Welcome to Jack London State Historic Park, once known as Jack London's "Beauty Ranch". The park's 1400 acres include the Beauty Ranch, Cottage, House of Happy Walls Museum, Wolf House ruins, and more than 20 miles of trails. We recommend that you allow 3 hours to visit and suggest that you purchase a park brochure to aid your self-guided walk through the past. 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.
DOGS: Leashed dogs are welcome in the historic areas of the park, including the trail to the Wolf House ruins. Dogs are not allowed inside any buildings or on the back country trails. Please clean up your pet waste.
SMOKING: Due to fire danger, smoking is allowed only in the 2 paved parking lots. Please use the provided ash trays to extinguish all smoking materials and prevent wildfires.
