Description

Added by Emily Kent

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!

Reviews

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.
