Visit Napa Nature.
Summer is the perfect season for venturing out and exploring the hiking trails in Napa Valley.
GO TAKE A HIKE!
Bring a Picnic!
We have a wonderful selection
of gourmet picnic items to
make your outdoor meal perfect!
One of our favorite picnic spots is the Bale Grist Mill, established in 1846
Some of our favorite hiking destinations include:
Moore Creek Park at Lake Hennessey in St. Helena features more than 6 miles of new trails and is dog-friendly. One trail wraps around the lake so you can enjoy the blue water, or trek the other way to the secret water hole at the top.
Bothe-Napa Valley State Park just up the road from St. Helena along highway 29 offers camping, picnicking, swimming, and more than 10 miles of hiking trails that go through shaded stands of coastal redwoods as well as forests of Douglas-fir, oak, and madrone. Visit the pioneer cemetary. Picnic tables and day use are available. There is a $10 entrance fee.
Napa weather in July is sunny and warm. There is little to no rain this time of year, so it is a popular time to visit.
It is also the perfect time to go on a hot air balloon ride, check out some of the local festivals, and enjoy a meal outdoors. Although it is warm during the day, it is usually still very pleasant to be outside.
