Explore the quiet beauty and historical footpaths of Sonoma’s Valley of the Moon The true hidden soul of Sonoma is found in its natural places. Intrepid seekers of earthly beauty have been drawn here from the beginning. Almost 2,500 feet, Sonoma Mountain has been a place for healing for the Native American tribes. And there is the well-known history of author and adventurer, Jack London and his Beauty Ranch, now a State Park which preserves a moment in time with abundant nature . Yet have you heard of maverick food writer’s M.F.K. Fisher, or the human rights activist and spunky entrepreneur, Mary Ellen Pleasant, or Ellen Stuart - the first woman we know to plant vineyards and the inspiration for the village of Glen Ellen? The early women of the Valley of the Moon were also inspired here, and can be known through visiting their sacred spots. As locals walking these trails daily, we can share these gentle hikes through Sonoma’s public and private trails and original vineyards to help you fully experience the nature of Sonoma. These hikes and meanderings are about 2 hours. Guides are local park docents, history experts, studied meditators and interesting locals you would hope to bump into on a trail whether you live here or not. Walks are moderate to semi-strenuous with some hills. We can always take out the semi-strenuous and add unforgettable wine tasting and outdoor picnics for a customized full sensory experience. Please get in touch and we will offer the tour to your liking!
