Hike the Westwood Hills Park Loop

Browns Valley Road

Great hike in Napa to stretch your legs or get a little exercise.

This park can get a little crowded on weekends, so best to go early if possible. In terms of parking, there's a lot at the trailhead, but also plenty of available street parking. 

The loop can be broken up in a various ways as there are several offshoots from the main trailhead/trail leaving from the parking lot. 

To get started, head up the trail from the parking lot to the top of the park where you'll see a bench that overlooks wine country. From here, head toward the chainlink fence and then down the trail next to the fence. This trail will create the loop, leading you around the outside of the park and back to your car. 

 Dogs are allowed on trail on-leash.

Overall rating: 

A nice incline hike for starters!

Not a super hard hike from the trails I took. It had a really pretty view of Napa, with incline that you could definitely feel but not super hard. Really enjoyed it, even saw a girl meditating with a book while passing through a trail. Would defiantly recommend trying it out!

Skyline Park is the perfect playground for the committed trail runner. The park has fast and swoopy forest singletrack, semi-technical climbing, and everything in-between.
