 Early Spring 2023

Visit Napa Nature.

Though it's still cold out , this is a wonderful season for venturing out and exploring the hiking trails in Napa Valley. 

The Mustard Flowers are starting to bloom!

Generally, the mustard bloom in Napa lasts from January - March with peak viewing arriving in mid-February.

 As far as the eye can see, large swaths of this colorful flower fill the gaps between the grapevines, it truly is a Napa Valley must see!

We are your one stop shop to gather

all your needs for a delightful

picnic lunch for you to take along and

get out and explore this beautiful time of

year in the valley.

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 Early Spring  is usually sunny, but cold. There is little rain this time of year, so it is a popular time to visit.

Mustard Flowers are in full bloom, covering many a vineyard floor in a sea of brightly yellow colored flowers!

It is also the perfect time to go on a hot air balloon ride, check out some of the local festivals, or bundle up and enjoy the great outdoors
