River To Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Connecting John F. Kennedy Memorial Park with the urban wilderness Skyline Wilderness Park, the River to Ridge Trail offers quick access to rugged terrain, views of Napa Valley, and isolation just a short distance from bustling Napa.
The River to Ridge Trail is something of an odd duck when it comes to trails in the Wine Country. It does not have a clear destination, and it has some oddly out- of- place sections that run through fenced passages. However, it is still a scenic trail running nearly the entire length of the Napa Valley to the north, and it has some good views of the city of Napa. It also has the unique distinction of being one of the few trails that begins at sea level and climbs into the mountains, contrasting the diverse geography of the region."
--Bubba Suess, Hiking California's Wine Country (Falcon Guides).
"The River to Ridge Trail, part of the Bay Area Ridge Trail, connects Kennedy Memorial Park at the Napa River to Skyline Wilderness Park in the forested mountains. The trail begins in a corridor between the Napa State Hospital and the privately owned Syar quarries. It soon opens up to an oak savannah and manzanita woodland with views of Napa Valley and the Mayacamas Mountains."
