The Wild & Wonderful "Skyline Wilderness" Wine Hike.

It's been a long time since doing this great outing.  The recent heavy rain hopefully will bring the  creeks & waterfalls to life.

This is a moderate to slightly strenuous 7-8 mile trek. Elevation to about 1200 ft. It can go to 1750 ft.  (For really super views) 

So much variety to experience. Creek crossings, super Napa valley & Napa river, San Pablo Bay scenic views, a hidden lake, lots of wildlife, late 19th century rock wall structures & other old sites, high hidden caves & mossy rock outcroppings, deep ravine & ledge walking along lush fern lined creeks & under tall overhead rock formations . &  the final trek thru the waterfall area will bring your senses into sharp focus.  

Are you sure you want to do this one ?  It could be boring ????  But I doubt it.

We will have a wine(included) picnic lunch on a trail somewhere.  Maybe overlooking a sparkling lake ?  

Also included: water, juice, tea, coffee, soda, snacks, trail bars, energy & protein drinks, gourmet fruit & nut packs, hiking poles, parking lot fees, & more; I just can't remember it?

Bring good hiking shoes, camera, layered clothing, & meet super fun people if this is your first time.

Our always fun dinner option follows the hike & is  only about 10 minutes away. I'll also have wine tasting passes available for hiker winos at dinner & if we go to Compadres on the Napa river; I'll have 1 buck House Margaritas for all. 

cost: $25

NOTE:   Meet 1 mile east on Imola ave .from hwy 221 (Soscal)  & park on the right in the Napa County Education office lot.  Facing the road(North) .   If you see a big open camping or field area on your right; you have passed the lot. Go back.

    The weather was a 12 on a scale of 1 to 10 only in Chgo.
    The waterfalls were not as big as I had hoped, but the area was beautiful & had much variety anyway.
    Sixteen made to the dinner afterwards. tasty margaritas yes !!!
    But sadly (only for the moment) another crappy day in Paradise had to end.

    Two great seldom experienced adventures coming up this weekend. Sunday is full.

    Tom - Regarding lunch... can you confirm that we will be packing it in since your post states picnic on the trail somewhere. It is all about the "accessories".
