Moore Creek and More - Hiking, Birds & Secret Swimming Hole

Ever wanted to discover a hidden pool? Well now's your chance! We're heading up to Moore Creek Park, located right above Lake Hennessy in Saint Helena. This trip will be full of neat birds like the Pileated Woodpecker - like Woody! The trail crosses the creek a few times with some steep sections along the way. The halfway point is a secret swimming pool that's perfect for a quick dip. Bring your swimsuit or just stick your toes in the water. We'll have some snacks here before heading back to Napa for drinks.

The carpool meets at the 2nd Street Garage on the top level (bottom levels are free for first 3 hours only). We leave promptly at 9! Meet at the trail head at 9:30.

Distance from downtown Napa: 30 minutes
Trail length: 5.4 mile loop
Duration: Around 3.5 hours (not including pool stop) 
Intensity: Moderate
Facilities: Bathrooms located at parking lot 
Parking: Free at garage and trail
*We love our furry friends, but pets are not permitted on field trips.

Dress in layers and bring water, hats, and snacks. Wear good hiking shoes for the steep parts of this trail.

The group will meet at Downtown Joe's for beer and bites after the hike. See you there!

    We had a nice hike up at Moore Creek last weekend! There were tons of birds at the trail head, then they slowly tapered off into late morning. We got a brief glimpse of the Pileated Woodpecker and saw a few Pacific Slope Flycatchers, among many others. A new funky succulent was also discovered - anyone know what it is? See you next time!

    Hey Flockers! Can't wait to see you all in the morning. We'll be at the top level of the parking garage for carpooling. As a note - avoid wearing white. Birds freak out and fly away!
