Winter Waterfall Hike & Winery Visit !

  • Jan 26, 2014 · 10:15 AM
  • The crossroads

This is a newer waterfall outing.  I only did it twice last year. Few know of it but for some locals.  It's easy except for the mossy huge boulders to climb down to the top of the Falls.  Follow me carefully & you will make it unscathed.  Cameras ; YES !!!!

Now I hope we get some decent rains before the date.  The falls are spectacular when the feeder creeks are flowing.  There will be some creeks to cross & some cool mossy cliffs to view and/or climb(optional) .  

Wear good hiking shoes & bring a lunch.  Dress in layers.   If it's misty or light rain ; I'll have ponchos for all.   **Don't wimp out if there is a little rain.

After our wine /lunch on top of the falls we will climb up stream for great photo opps & head back on a different trail.

Optional wine tasting follows at two different nearby wineries.  I'll have special passes for free tastings or very low cost.  

cost: 25 bucks.  Also includes:  Wine at lunch, water, juice, tea, soda, coffee, energy & protein drinks, gourmet fruit & nut packs, hiking poles , car shuttles & more.

Meet location:  Take hwy 29 North thru St. Helena & past the CIA. (Culinary Institute) . keep going for a couple of miles & Watch for Deer park Rd on your right.  Turn right (East) & go to the blinking stoplight. Park along the road on the South East corner.  It's in front of a fruit stand. 

OR:  take hwy 29 N. (freeway) going out of Napa & turn right on Oak Knoll Rd. to Silverado trail & turn left (North) it's  (faster & no stops)   Take it all the way to Deerpark rd. (Blinking red light) Turn left and park along the rd. 

Ok; now pray for lot's of rain.  NOTE:  This area is very close to the Wine castle in Calistoga. 

I haven't hiked for 2 weeks and my legs are getting wobbly.  

************OH by the way:  The next Hawaii trips start on March 24th.   Only six spots available. Awesome adventure trips !!!   Really.   All inclusive;just get air fare.

So watch for the Dec photos asap.

    I just returned 2 days ago after spending the afternoon at the hike & falls area. I re worked the trail to access the falls more safely. The falls are flowing, but not like I'm used to.

    Please remember that you must cancel by 5:30 pm the day before the event. If you are really a mingler; these adventure/wine outings have many attending. Events fill fast. This one has over 20 already. I'm not a "Certified Fun Provider" for nothing. You will never be disappointed.
