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.

Nice ride up, “doable”. Dry in the sun but still moist in the shade. Fiire damage is beautiful in its own way.

The beginning part of the trail was recently burned so there are bulldozer tracks on parts of the trail, but the trail is clearly marked

Large tree down across trail, blocking trail, easy to get over, more difficult to ride over without damaging bottom bracket... Still very wet in...
