Robert Louis Stevenson State Park is the place where the famous author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped spent his honeymoon in 1880. Although nothing remains of Stevensons cabin, the site is identified on the trail to the summit. The area features rough terrain, with evergreen forests in the canyons on north-facing slopes and chaparral on the south-facing slopes. There is a five-mile hike to the top of Mt. St. Helena from which one can see much of the San Francisco Bay Area. On good days the top of Mt. Shasta can be seen, 192 miles in the distance. To protect the park's wildlife and other natural resources, dogs are not permitted in this park. Open sunrise to sunset.

Great Hike. Mountain Bikes also use this trail. No definite summit or peak. Old wagon wheel marks visible in the rocks on the way up. Great views nonetheless.

Stunning views, moderate difficulty. I was glad to have hiking boots rather than my typical trail runners, especially for parts of the trail a few miles beyond Table Rock. We did this hike in November & it was a great time of year to appreciate the fall leaves, hills slowly turning green, and the cool weather. I'm not sure that I would repeat this hike mid-summer as many miles are along exposed hillsides.
A welcomed surprise was the ice cold pint from the pizza joint we enjoyed across the street from the trail head on the Calistoga side...such a nice way to end the 11+ mile journey!

Good hike. Pretty steep but short.

2.5 hours round trip. At times I wasn't sure if I was going the correct way. More difficult than I thought. Need good shoes and at least 2L of H2O!
