Sonoma and Mendocino counties, just north of San Francisco, are a walker's paradise. Pacific views, whale-backed hills of grasses and wildflowers, redwood-fir forests tucked away in secluded valleys - all connected by a superlative network of footpaths and old roads through state park lands. Sonoma hiking trails go through grape vineyards in bloom in Spring, or being harvested in Autumn, and on the Mendocino coastline, we can enjoy the beaches and surf.

In Sonoma, we will have a vineyard tour and tasting at Ravenswood, first started by the "zin master", Joel Peterson. Other good winery options include Kenwood and Valley of the Moon. Our Beltane-based walks range from Jack London and Sugarloaf State Parks to nice trails right on the ranch. On Tuesday evening we can take in the Sonoma Plaza farmers market, which is really seeing a slice of Wine Country life. We go through redwoods and river valleys to the magnificent Pacific coastline! We'll walk among stately redwoods as well as on trails with oceanscapes-a-plenty. During our stay near Point Arena, we include the low-tide classic walk at Schooner Gulch, hitting our stride on Bowling Ball Beach.

Mendocino looks like a New England town, with gabled rooflines, picket fences, and gingerbread trim- work, but here, dramatically poised on a headland, overlooking the Pacific. We can happily sample footpaths in nearby state parks and walk the headlands as well. You can even rent a bike and go up the Big River path for miles! We stay three days and nights at the quiet, historic Beltane Ranch near Glen Ellen, in Sonoma Valley; then two nights at the The Wharf Master's Inn on the coast near Point Arena; a final two nights at The Joshua Grindle Inn in Mendocino, also near the ocean.

We head inland along the Navarro River to Anderson Valley, with great scenery and a final picnic lunch at a low-key winery. We'll have people back to their cars (parked in Glen Ellen for a few days), or at Sonoma Plaza/bus stop by 5pm, for post-trip lodging and airport shuttle buses.
