Took whole day. Very hot, little shade. Went up to wrong mountain top at first then had to backtrack back down. Saw arrow in road too late. Saw it on our way back down. Beautiful and worth it though. First real hike ever.

A nice shady trail. Too overgrown to see any scenery into Napa valley, but a very pleasant walk in the woods.

This is a nice hike but not too intense. It is a steady climb that is certainly a moderate or above level. Fortunately, the incline begins right away so beginners won't get too far before they realize they are in over their heads. There are numerous trails that lead off the main one but still get you to the top. A constant view of the valley helps you decide which of the trails to take as there are few markings. For some reason, people think that leash laws don't apply to them so be prepared for dogs running up to say hello.

Historic Oat Hill Mine Road to Holm's Place

Our first attempt at this trail, and only made it about halfway due to a late start on the day. Still, it is one of the more beautiful, scenic hikes in Napa Valley. It is solidly a moderately difficult trail as it is steadily uphill from the valley, albeit at a very temperate incline. The trail is mostly wide enough for easy passing, though it is rocky with loose rock, so wearing good hiking shoes is a must. The trail is well maintained. It winds in and out of shade, so is very comfortable. The vistas as you climb are incredible, getting up high enough that you can look all the way down Napa Valley. We're really looking forward to going the full distance one day soon. Very highly recommended.

Enjoyed this hike. Easy to Moderate difficulty. Watch out for bikes. The trail is narrow and they come down fast. Wear good trail shoes as their are lots of fist sized loose rocks. Great views of Calistoga. Equal areas of sun and shade. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relatively easy hike to see the expansive views. Parking for about 8 cars.

The hike is worth it for the views alone. For the first third of the trail, hiking is at a moderate incline under a large canopied forest. As you work your way up to the breaking tree line, the next two thirds of the hike is even easier but a little more redundant. (Pay close attention where the trail meets the road as there are very few markers at this point and you will need to know this on the way back) This fire road and its surrounding dry chaparral rarely lend any shade breaks for the remainder of the hike. Bring plenty of water and a good shade hat. Every switchback offers remarkable views that get better and better as you progress. Near the top at the saddle where the ridge finally flattens out, you have the option to go left up to the south peak or continue north. Winds can pick up violently here too so tie down your hat! The views most come for are further up the road. Cross the saddle ridge and keep moving up the mountain to the last north peak. Almost there! At the last fork in the road there is a small sign that points left towards a few tall trees that dot the road. Follow that sign, pass through the grove and continue up the road. The incline grows slightly steeper here so take notice of your footing. When you reach the top, enjoy.
- A few other things: The parking lot can get crowded quickly so show up early. Park closes at sunset. Keep the dogs at home. The overall hike is about 10 miles round trip. About 3 hours up and 2.5 hours down average pace. Mount St. Helena North Peak is at 4,339 Feet.

Table Rock Trail - Palisades Trail to Holm's Place

Actually went from table rock trailhead to Holm's place (6 miles), then descended via oat mill mine road (4.5 miles) to the junction of Hwy 29 and Silverado trail. The last 1.5 miles of the palisades trail before Holmes's place are the hardest part of the trail in my opinion, and elevate the trail to strenuous from moderate. The oat mill mine road trail is all downhill from here but quite rocky/ full of boulders- best done in hiking boots. The views from this trail are phenomenal, the rocks along palisade trail are just amazing. One of my fave hikes ever. All in all, this way it's about 10.5 miles (much better than going back the 6 miles from Holmes's place). However, do leave one car at the oat mill mine road trailhead and drive the other to the table-rock trailhead, you'll need to go back for you car or you might get a warning ticket from the sheriff if you leave your car on the Hwy overnight (personal experience).
