Went to Wolf House. So visionary and beautiful. Would recommend to see in the morning before the heat of the day during summer. Educational and interesting. A nice walk in the hills.

If you aren't familiar with Jack London, you should be! And if you are, you will enjoy this Park even more. It has about 30 miles of mixed use trails, and never seem overcrowded.

I only wish the full park had been dog friendly. Well worth the entry fee. The buildings are amazing relics, the information posts are perfect although the maps were a little difficult to follow
