Cemetery Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This hike explores one of California’s most fascinating historic idiosyncrasies: a Russian fur-hunting settlement on the Sonoma Coast, dating back nearly two hundred years. The fort stockade has largely been restored to its original appearance, with massive rough-hewn timber walls and log buildings filled with implements of the era. An excellent visitor center and bookstore cover the rich history admirably well. The hike leads from the fort down to Fort Ross Cove, where the Russians launched their furhunting expeditions, and on up the creek to the settlement’s cemetery."
