Alternative Hike: Jack London State Park

We will explore less-traveled trails, including Cowan and Hayfields. Our 7½ mile route is rated moderate, with a steady uphill climb for an elevation gain of about 1200 feet. Estimated time is 4 1/2 hours, including lunch. (Note: My pace is somewhat slower than that of most Wanderer leaders.)

As usual, please wear good hiking boots and bring water and a lunch. This hike is sponsored by Valley of the Moon Natural History Association and CA state parks. Thank you Leigh for letting us post monthly hikes here.

Car pools:

Petaluma: Lucky shopping center at the intersection of Caulfield and Lakeville. Park closest to Payran Street. Suggested leave time by 8:45 am.

Santa Rosa: 1) Coddingtown library parking lot; suggested leave by 8:45 am 2) Instead, you may want to carpool from Channel Drive dirt lot near entrance to Annadel across from Cobblestone trail. Suggested leave time about 9:00.

Come prepared to drive, in case there are riders only or no one else shows up at your location.
