Hike through coastal forests or enjoy a stroll along a shady creek in the heart of the Napa Valley.
For a change of pace from Napa Valley wine tasting, visit Bothe-Napa Valley State Park’s trails, picnic areas, equestrian facilities, or swimming pool. There are over 10 miles of hiking trails through shady redwood forests and sunny chaparral slopes–remnants of the vegetation that clothed the surrounding area before grapes took over. For those wanting to extend their stays, there are 50 drive-in or walk-in campsites. An easy 1.2-mile trail connects Bothe-Napa Valley to Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park and its restored historic water-powered grain mill. Both parks are on the state parks closure list (planned for implementation by July 2012), so visit them now, while you can!
