Ft. Hunter Liggett
Distance: 254 miles one-way
At dusk, the Hacienda presents a bucolic image of Old California. Inspired by California Mission and Spanish colonial styles, the complex once served mainly as headquarters for William Randolph Hearsts Milpitas ranch staff. Its now part of Ft. Hunter Liggett, an Army facility in the central part of the state. Visitors can stay the night there.
