Hike Jack London at twilight
The series of monthly Twilight Picnic Hikes in Sonoma County's breathtaking state parks will continue on Thursday, Aug. 18, at Jack London State Park.
Due to park closures at Jack London State Park, note that the August hike will be held on a Thursday, not Wednesday.
The free docent-led hikes travel through redwood groves, along creeks and across meadows and last about an hour-and-a-half. At twilight, wildlife enthusiasts may experience sightings of deer, jackrabbits and coyote foraging for food.
Hikers are asked to meet at 5:15 p.m. in the upper parking lot for a 5:30 p.m. departure. The Jack London State Park hike to the 1,000-year-old "Grandmother" tree will culminate with a bring-your-own-picnic at the picnic tables near the upper parking lot.
Hikers are asked to park only in the upper parking lot as the lower lot gate closes at 5 p.m. Vehicle parking fees in state parks range from $6 to $8.
The free docent-led hikes are co-sponsored by the California State Parks and the Valley of the Moon Natural History Association.
