Great hike with amazing scenery. The waterfall is worth the distance. It was pretty tough taking the lower trail to get back as it is mostly uphill.

Beautiful day with a lovely waterfall and a great view atop one of the side trails. Good incline. Was easy even with a little muddy conditions.

it was a long hike but worth it at the end

Unexpected beautiful landscape. The cows graze land; so be mindful since they’re not behind a fence.

Great trail, took a picture of the map located at the trailhead, well marked easy to follow directions, shaded with big trees for majority of the hike. Muddy today but no big deal, still enjoyed this quiet hike.

Amazing waterfall. Easy to navigate. Takes a long time to achieve the waterfall, but it's worth it!

Beautiful views, most of the trail was on an incline, especially towards the end so I would not rate this trail easy.

Make sure you’re out of the gate before 5pm; but if you do get locked in there’s a hole in the chain link fence about 10 meters back that you can crawl through then hop the non-barbed wire fence to the south of the locked gate to get out.

The point of doing this 12.9 kilometer is to reach the Zim Zim water fall in Napa. The trail is fine, i crossed the creek 11-12 times as i hiked. the scenery wasnt that impressive i saw pipes many times and to me this ruins the beauty of nature.

The trail branches as you get closer to the waterfall. If you go left, prepare yourself for serious bushwhacking. I got pulled, pushed, scratched, poked, poked in the eye, i scrambled, i climbed, i screamed to no use.

i couldnt find the trail to the waterfall, the bushes,the rising water, and the wobbly rocks stubbornly blocked access to the waterfall.

Fearing that darkness will soon descend and i would be stuck on a boulder with no way back or forwarded, i declared defeat and retreated.

I took the second path leading up the waterfall and managed to see it from above.

Not the same experience but i will be back with some backup.

The drive to the waterfall was not easy, snaking road that can get you dizzy. Closer to the beginning of the trail, the road got really bumpy. Many holes so watch out.

Also if the water level of the creek gets high, it floods the road. Not this year though, very minimal flooding, the road is passable

The area had some beautiful spots. Many trials were steep and slightly washed out. Definitely wear sturdy shoes. Lots of dog poop on the trail which was super disappointing, especially being a dog owner myself. People, pick up after your dogs please! Decent enough place to get out and hike around.

Excellent trail. Easy parking and safe feeling. Was hoping for a view to the south to see SF on summit, but mostly valley views, arguably more pretty anyways. Shady, so really good for warm days, but can be really cold feeling on colder days (62 today but felt way cooler in woods), so wear many layers if it’s below 65.

Moderate rating is accurate - steepish sections but trails are very easy to follow and well maintained. Did it in about two hours. Lots of horse manure when we went, easy for humans to dodge, no big deal, but may become frustrating if you are navigating your four legged friends who always wanna sniff around it the whole way.

Like all hiking treks, check for ticks at the end. Noticed one heading for open skin after I got into my vehicle, caught him though, no sucking on me sucker!

Did this hike 2 years ago with my wife and her fam. Gunsite is worth it for the view. I’m in decent shape and didn’t really have any trouble with it.

This trail is remote! The first part of the trail I would classify as easy. Towards the waterfall, I would classify as moderate. We met two guys hunting coyotes about 1.25 miles in. They were very nice. Lots of birds. We flushed out a whole bunch of what we call grouse on the east coast.

Just hiked this trail. It was the first time I did the full trail. I am a hiking guide for over 23 yrs.
Have hiked all of the trials in Napa this is by far has the best views.
The trail is great for mid to advance hikers.
Would do this first thing in the am.

Great place to hike !! Trail was very well maintained and easy to navigate. And the views were worth every bit of aching feet and back. Met lots of friendly hikers and dogs. Only disappointment was the graffiti and the trash and empty water bottles people left behind.

Love this breath of fresh air right in Napa! There are a lot of side trails so I don't know if I actually followed the one on this map, but luckily it's not easy to get lost since the park isn't huge and there are plenty of people around. The views of Napa, and hills between Napa and Sonoma, are great!

One of my all time favorites! Stunning scenery! Upper trail is easy, if you want a difficult loop, hike the upper trail in & lower trail out (almost entirely up hill). Amazing beauty the entire trail any time of year! Not easy for young kids.

Very Nice

I love walking at this park.

great trail easy to follow!

Steeper than we thought, beautiful area. Good parking.

Nice! start with the uphill part first so you aren't exhausted at the end like we were!

Good hike. Great for family time and adventure.

Great trail with moderate switch back to the to the peak. Good work out with great views of the valley below.

Go when it’s a little foggy

Did the steep climb first, started at 9:00 finished in 3 hours. Took it slow and enjoyed the views. The last 2.5 miles along the lake were kind of boring, but still pretty. Outhouse near the trail head is the only opportunity for bathroom facilities.

I really like this trail. I have done the full loop once in the summer and the last time we hiked the eastern 4.5 mile both ways to add some extra mileage. The waterfall is beautiful albeit a little touristy for my taste. A mostly shaded hike with some great views and wildlife. We have seen orange salamanders both times on the trail summer and winter. Dog friendly!

Nice hike. Several ticks were trying to attach to do and and one attached to my leg. Be prepared and check yourself and animals well.

one of my all time favorite hikes. easy terrain, no steep grades, but still an engaging hike to a gorgeous view. we often camp 1 or 2 nights at the trail head.

Such an amazing and beautiful hike.
