We worked a trail hike into one of the mornings of our winery tour weekend. The trail head that we parked at is a 15 minute drive north on CA29 from the point where Lincoln Ave, Lake St, and Silverado Trail come together on the eastern edge of Calistoga. The parking is minimal but decent. We chose a trail which... 更多
If you have read Silverado Squatters by Robert Louis Stevenson, then its worth the visit to where he squatted on his honeymoon whilst he was in Calistoga in the Napa Valley area. A commerative plaque marks the spot of the cabin he lived in with Fanny Stevenson nee Osbourne and his stepson. The spot is just off the trailhead up... 更多
Driving into the Napa Valley from the north you will go through this park. It is a windy drive but it is quite beautiful and there are many places to stop and take a beautiful nature walk.
Good trails: fairly strenuous and can be a little slippery at times, so be cautious. Wear the appropriate shoes, bring plenty of water and be prepared to be out there for a while.

We enjoyed the hike but it's undulating and quite exposed in parts so bring lots of water. It's not well marked in certain areas so be sure to leave your own markers at intersections/forks.
