Climbs on the east and west sides of the valley offer grand redwoods and vast vistas with 6,450 feet of climbing that gives you the complete Napa experience, manicured rows of vines, rocky outcrops and horse country. Add Lake Hennessey, Lake Berryessa, a pair of locally famous climbs, Mt Veeder** and Ink Grade, and a couple of fun downhill runs.
**Due to the heavy rains this winter, there is a chance the county may not let us ride on Mt. Veeder. Please stay tuned for any updates in the route.
Wineries and vineyards give way to farmscapes as you pass Lake Hennessey and roll through Pope Valley (where you join the 100 mile route) before a tough climb up Ink Grade. Descend Howell Mountain for seven miles to St. Helena, Silverado Trail, and Yountville. 3550' of climbing.
