Sunset at Stebbins Cold Canyon 5 miles Intermediate

Stebbins Cold Canyon Nature Reserve is located just past Winters outside Davis.

It is a tough intermediate 5 mile loop with rock scrambling and lots of high stair steps.

A great workout with wonderful views of Sacramento. I hope we can watch the sunset from the ridge, so BRING A HEADLAMP and an extra layer for the way down.

2:00pm at 11th and P Park and Ride

3:00pm at the trailhead

5:04pm sunset

7:00pm back at Sacramento (approximate)

No dogs allowed on the reserve - sorry!

The reserve is about 55 minutes from 11th and P.

Directions to trailhead:

West on I-80 to Hwy 113

Exit at Covell Blvd/E6 (left over freeway) to Winters

In Winters, take Hwy 128 toward Lake Berryessa.



A silver fire gate will be obvious 0.2 miles past the point where Hwy 128 crosses Putah Creek. This is the main entrance to the reserve.

Parking is located directly across from the entrance.

Please pay your carpool driver $4 per hour of drive time. So, about $7.

    Hi! I'll meet you at 11th & P but I can't take any riders.

    I WISH I could go! it was SO GREAT last time, Shannon. All those who are reading this and on the fence, GO. It's wonderful! And the 8 feet or so of steep hands-and-feet rock-scrambling section was re-routed a year or so ago so it's easier now. There's one very short boulder-hop section, but it's easy.

  • Janice Marie F.

    Well I'm going to back out of this hike 'cause I'm not sure I'm going to be able to do the rock scrambling. Enjoy ya all!!!
