This hike traverses one of the most fascinating but inhospitable areas in the Wine Country, exploring Pope Creek before climbing through remote country to an awesome overlook high above rustic Pope Valley. NOTE: If Pope Creek is high, turn back rather than attempt an ill-advised crossing. When water levels are appropriate, cross the narrow channel to the grassy island and follow the path through vegetation, crossing more small channels amid the trees.
