Description

The trail, once a stage couch route between Calistoga and Aetna Springs, provides a magnificent recreational experience for hikers, mountain bicyclists and equestrians, although the trail is rough and rocky in many places, and can be quite challenging.  Visitors can enjoy sweeping views of Napa Valley along the lower Oat Hill Mine Trail, while the middle and upper sections of the trail cross striking volcanic formations. The trail passes through a diverse mixture of Oak, Douglas Fir, Gray Pine and Cypress forests, chaparral, and grasslands.  Keep an eye out for wagon wheel ruts on the trail.  Hike to Holms place, turn around and return to the parking lot.
