  • Went to Wolf House. So visionary and beautiful. Would recommend to see in the morning before the heat of the day during summer. Educational and interesting. A nice walk in the hills.  more »
  • This is a really neat location to visit. The history of the building and Jack London's story is great. A majestic location to wander and take photos. We visited in the rain and enjoyed the hike down to the old ruin.
  • This is a beautiful park for peaceful nature walks. The park staff are very helpful and they keep park amenities well maintained. You can see Jack London's home with a lot of interesting artifacts from his life and writings. Just down the hill are the picturesque ruins the Wolf House, which burned down before it was completed. At the other end of the path from the Wolf House is Jack London's grave as well as a small pioneer cemetery.
  • The docents are very knowledgeable and friendly. Exhibits are set up well. The ranch is beautiful.
  • Great hiking trails scattered with bits of history. If you go all the way to the park summit you are rewarded with gorgeous views of Sonoma.
  • This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. There's a great choose-your-own-adventure network of hiking trails for any level of hiker.
