Nestled on the east-facing slopes of Mount Burdell, Olompali State Historic Park offers exquisite views from the Petaluma River basin out to the San Francisco Bay. Olompali’s serene hills and waters have been home to Coast Miwok, wealthy landowners, Catholic priests, a psychedelic rock group and a hippie commune.
Wear layers, sunscreen and comfortable shoes, and bring a snack, water and camera. After the walk, meet at the Frame House (Visitor Center/Museum) to learn more about the incredible people of Olompali. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch for after the walk. Sorry—dogs are not allowed in State Historic Parks.
