Jack London Historic State Park, in partnership with the local events team at Mountain Travel Sobek, is proud to host a fundraising hike on Jan 27, 2018 to help fund a fuel reduction and defensible space program to mitigate extreme fire dangers. This is the perfect opportunity to return to Sonoma County and lend support for Sonoma Mountain and Jack London Park, which are among the most treasured gifts in the Sonoma Valley. It’s also a great way to meet like-minded hikers and find rejuvenation in the great outdoors! We will also be joined by some of the park staff at Jack London Park.

Hear tales from Mountain Travel founder Allen Steck, who will be signing his new book A Mountaineer's Life at the Mountain Travel Sobek office in Emeryville, California, on Thursday December 14, 2017 from 5:30pm. His stories are from the days when mountain climbing was discovery, when men like Steck forged new routes, both literal and literary. With dry humor and detailed recall, Steck captures the excitement and intrigue of a time when there were few rules and no guidelines.
