Stevenson Monument Trail (Robert Louis Stevenson State Park) Professional Review and Guide
"This study in switchbacks leads to a monument erected to honor famed writer Robert Louis Stevenson, who honeymooned on the lower slopes of Mount St. Helena in 1880. A small stone monument topped with an open book commemorates Robert Louis Stevenson’s visit to Mount St. Helena. In the late nineteenth century, before he hit the big time, Stevenson brought his new bride, Fanny, to an abandoned mining cabin on the flanks of the mountain. Now both the cabin and Stevenson are gone, but his legacy remains."
