Sunset at Stebbins Cold Canyon 5 miles Intermediate

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

It is a very 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.

1:00pm at 11th and P Park and Ride

2:00pm at the trailhead

4:45pm 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.

    Today got a new foster dog or shall I say personal trainer. The eskimo is taking me on so many walks that I won't make the hike. Hopefully next time.
