Docents take people on haunting walks in the downtown Historic area . I went once, but saw no ghosts. So I couldn't call Ghost Busters !
We start from the parking lot & go along a creek trail & gradually go up to about 5-600 ft.. The views overlooking Sonoma & The Valley of the Moon are beautiful. I'll take you thru some unique off trail locations to see the back side of the valley.
I have added some new trails to this hike to make it a little bit longer & to see some added nature & viewing experiences. This is a good event for photos. Great viewing of the "Valley of the Moon " But this is an easy hike.
Between both valleys are unusual rock formations & an old quarry where much of the rock was used in valley projects many years ago. There are some rock open tunnel areas to pass thru. Then another ledge view of the East side vineyards. Out trek back takes us thru the old cemetery where General Vallejo & his wife are entombed. Also are other famous wine dignitaries . *** The only person from the Revolutionary war to be buried in California is in this cemetery. This very old cemetery has much history behind it.
We should finish our hike by 3:30pm. At this time we have a few options. We can walk into the Downtown Square & I;ll have wine passes for any who wish to do some wine & barrel tasting. We can also stop at the Cheese factory. Then we can decide where some of us would like to have an early dinner.
