State parks are filled with natural beauty and history that keep people traveling all over to see what nature has to offer. A little over a year ago, I stumbled upon Wilder State Ranch Park, the old home of some of the central coast’s early ranchers, but I didn’t have time to truly explore. In mid-November, I finally went on another morning walk and discovered one of the park’s many trails and historic buildings. The coastal view from the trail was more than I could ask for. It was the perfect place to be and simply walk in silence.
