A great trail to up your technical riding abilities If you like going fast, it's possible to hit 25mph+ on the trail. You can go slow too. I highly recommend this trail. There are two ways to get into the trail. One way is to go through Skyline Wilderness Park's entrance which is a minimum of $15 with bikes (I think). Or you can enter on the opposite side of the highway from the Napa Valley College entrance. That way is free!

P.S. Don't park in the college's parking lot. You'll get a ticket.

Access Info

Skyline Wilderness Park OR Highway 221 side.

       Kind of a long shot, but if anyone found a pair of dark green Giro gloves in the parking lot, shoot me a pm.
