    Trail recommendation in Napa?

    Next month I'll be going to St Helena for the week-end, and I'll have a few hours to spare in the morning to go biking. Does anybody have a recommendation for an intermediate trail out there?

    Annadel

    Annadel is about 35 miles away, near Santa Rosa. I think it is some of the best riding in NorCal outside of the Sierras. Maps and info on my site.

    Thanks, but that might be pushing it. I'll be there with wife and kids, and I probably have 3hrs top (say 8am to 11am) of free time, so Santa Rosa is out of the question. I was hoping for a trail, even if not too technical, to ride nearby.

    BTW, nice website.

    las posadas

    Iíd suggest Las Posadas State Forest (in Angwin) for a close and fun ride. (Mountain bike rides towards the bottom). Check out http://www.napavalleyvelo.org/rides.php

    Itís mostly smooth and groovy, kind of like Boggís. Dual suspension and strong lungs are optional. Of course if you want a really interesting "intermediate ride" go for Ride X as they call it...just ask around. Check with the LBSís in Calistoga for ideas.

    Have fun.

    Ditto - Angwin/Las Posadas

    Angwin is just up the hill from St Helena. Map here:

    The lower right corner of the map is the Angwin airport parking lot.

    Also, about a half hour drive south of St Helena is Skyline Park in Napa. Great singletrack there.

    Thanks for the tip. Angwin/Las Posadas looks like a winner. I'll just make sure to bike before drinking...

    Oh, and...

    Make sure to stop at Taylor's Automatic Refresher on Main St for an Ahi burger and milkshake after the ride.

    Also consider Skyline Park in Napa. Good trails there. Won't take all day either.

    Great place to ride- lots of fun stuff.

    Start early (hot) and take plenty of water. Expensive to park ($5-6?) and almost as expensive to bike in (if you were to park outside the gates). They'll give you a trail map at the kiosk.

    May be a few horses/hikers, but we've never had conflicts. Many different types of trails- rocky stuff, shady ST, wide open fire roads and rock gardens.

    You could also consider Oat Hill in Calistoga- do a Google search, The Ogre's review is the first listing.

    Skyline is stellar or ride from St. Helena up the Siverado Trail road to Calistoga and do Oat Hill.
