This 4.5 mile loop hike offers a gorgeous birds-eye view of Lake Berryessa.

Stebbins Cold Canyon is a great day hike for all skill levels, accessible year round, and offers an abundance of wild flower viewing, including the California poppy. Tog get to the hike, head about 8 miles west of Winters, CA, where a silver fire gate marks the main entrance to the Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve. The trailhead is a 10-minute walk from the entrance.

Poison oak is abundant and rattle snakes among other poisonous snakes are native to this area, so keep an eye out!

Great In/out Hike

This area is quintessential NorCal and the mileage/elevation is enough to bring newcomers and residents together looking to substitute a workout with outdoor activity and time shared with others. Juice is worth the squeeze on this hike.
