About the event
This 9.7-mile out-and-back trail near Calistoga is generally considered a challenging route. Take in awesome eye popping views at the summit of the highest peak in the California Wine Country when we gaze upon the stunning panorama at the 4,342 summit of Mount St. Helena in Robert Louis Stevenson State Park. The peak north of Calistoga looms large above the rolling hills of Napa and Sonoma counties. The five-mile hike to the summit has over 2,000 feet of elevation gain, so be ready for a workout. The hike starts on Stevenson Memorial Trail, climbing just under a mile and passing through the area where the famed author Robert Louis Stevenson ("Kidnapped," "Treasure Island) honeymooned with his new bride in 1880. Bring your poles and lunch and I’ll bring those fabulous Brownies from Bonnie. Departs Berger at 8:30 am. Hike leader Gary Andersen 360-778-9604 firstname.lastname@example.org
