If any entirely uphill hike can be enjoyed, it’s this one. Your hike begins at the white gate on CR 40, where you’ll see a notification that the bridge is out (it isn’t), along with several other important but not-very-useful signs. Descend and cross the low-water bridge that straddles Cache Creek. River rafters are required to portage here, so they take the opportunity for a lunch break right near the trailhead. After crossing the creek, walk uphill and watch for a sign about 50 paces to the left, indicating the trailhead’s location. Turn left and walk to the yellow gate; step through on the left and follow the doubletrack over toward the rafters’ picnic grounds.

Great hike and can be a little challenging for some people. The steps and going over the rocks can be quite a journey for some. Highly recommend this place if you aren't afraid of a little hard work.

This is my goto hike whenever I have guests in town that like to hike. I prefer to do the hike in counterclockwise direction, doing the ups right away, and walking down the steps at the Homestead Trail. Awesome views of Lake Berryessa. Wonderful ridgeline hike
