What we’ll do

Our hike begins in the ferns and redwoods on the south fork of Matanzas Creek in a beautiful, removed Regional Park. We'll wind through forests and meadows until we reach our summit 2.2 miles in. Views of Bennett Valley and surrounding southern Sonoma County await us at the peak. We'll have a picnic snack at the top before heading back the way we came in. Roundtrip is 4.4 miles.

Where you'll be

We'll hike up Sonoma Mountain via the remote trails that lead into Jack London State Park. For a longer hike we can extend the trip and continue into Jack London. Note: we'll need to arrange this option when booking for logistical purposes. Alternate route is also on Sonoma Mountain but we'll be looking West toward the Pacific Ocean.
