Explore Wine Country on Foot – Hiking Trails of Napa Valley
When you think of Napa, you most likely dream of the wine, vineyards, and food. However, there is a lot more to do in Napa Valley in addition to exploring the local wineries. One of the best activities, especially if you are visiting in the spring, is hiking. Napa has breathtaking hiking trails on each side of the valley.
Here are some of the best known hikes to check into during your next visit to Napa:
- Skyline Wilderness Park – This is an 850-acre park with activities for everyone. Here you can hike, camp and even go horseback riding. There are more than 25 miles of trails and a short trail that takes you to Lake Marie.
- Westwood Hills Park – This is found on your way to Mt. Veeder Appellation and features 3 miles of forested trails. They often are described as something out of a fairytale with their long, stately bodies and moss covered roots.
- Bothe Napa Valley State Park – This is up in Calistoga and has nearly 2,000 acres as well as hiking trails that run along creeks and through the redwoods. You will find plenty of places to stop and enjoy a picnic or go camping if you are more adventurous.
- Robert Louis Stevenson State Park – Here you will find 5,000 acres to explore as well as Mt. St. Helena and the statue of the famous author that the park was named after. It is a great place to hike, but it also happens to be one of the more difficult trails to take on. If you are a novice at hiking, make sure you go in a group with experienced hikers.
