    This trail relentlessly climbs 500 ft every mile for the entire length of the trail, but is well worth the effort. Great views of Calistoga, upper Napa Valley, and the neighboring countryside. This is a generally wide and rocky trail. It is easy to follow and there are signs marking every mile. There are several use/game trails if you prefer hiking ridgelines or want to summit some nearby hills. Check the weather forecast as this area can be very hot from late spring through early fall. If you have the time, dont stop at this trail and miss out on the Palisades Trail which is an even greater treat.

    Caught this one on a relatively cool day for August. Don't attempt this one on a hot day as it is exposed on more than half the hike. Great views of the North Napa Valley area, as well as view up valley towards Mt St Helena. Its a fairly gradual climb over 4.5 miles, but bring a solid soled set of shoes. You will be walking over lots of rocks. Well worth the effort. Easy to find, right at the intersection of HWY 29 and the Silverado Trail.

    Wonderful views of the Napa Valley. The trail is easy to follow, but a good pair of hiking boots are a must. The volcanic rock areas can be hard on the feet. This hike is a must!
