Hike Date: December 31, 2013
Distance: ~ 5 miles (portions of unofficial trail)
Trail(s): Stanly Ranch Trail
Where’s it at? Eastern Carneros, Southwest of Hwy 12 and Hwy 29 intersection in Napa


Stanly Ranch Public Trails is nearly at the intersection of Hwy 12 and 29 in Napa, and is a non-contiguous section of the San Francisco Bay Trail. The trail map link below shows the sections planned for the future (dashed lines) which will eventually make this contiguous, and give the option for further hikes, runs or biking adventures.

I simply hiked here because I like exploring new trails and am running out of hikes close to home. I also drive by the trailhead on my way to work quite often. My hike is not 100% official trail, I ended up making it a big loop by hiking along the road after the trail ended. The trail is really only a dedicated trail (though paved) for a very short section right near the trailhead. It would be an ideal place to walk your dog if you live nearby and isn’t too bad if you enjoy hiking along the sides of vineyards. There is virtually no elevation gain or loss to the trail.

Definitely not a destination hike, but I’m excited for the future of the SF Bay Trail when it will be a contiguous section through Sonoma, Napa and American Canyon. For now it is simply a very short trail to hike on if you’re local, though Timberhill Park or Westwood Hills, nearby, are much more exciting.
