No Dogs Allowed On Trails! Winter Hours (Until Spring Time Change) 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Summer Hours (Spring Time Change to Sept 30th) 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM Fall Hours (Oct 1st Until Fall Time Change) 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Fun quick trail some good views and not too rough.

Lots of long grass, little visability, no view at the summit. Overall not worth it.

First thing, you have you pay a $5 dollar say use fee to hike. It's well worth the money if your up for the challenge. If you hike the whole loop, skyline trail to sugarloaf trail on to manzanita trail, your in for about a 3 hour walk. I started at 10:00 a.m. and finished at 1:00 p.m., covering 7.8 miles and 2,040 ft elevation change. I didnt see any rattlesnakes, hogs, deer, cougars etc. Does not mean that they are not there, so be mindful. I would not recommend bringing children, as some areas are very steep and slippery and it gets extremly hot. Bring lots of water and stay hydrated!! Overall a fun, tough hike. Have fun and be safe!!

Dry and extremely hot in the middle of the day. Recommend wearing long pants given the narrow trails and significant overgrowth.

Lots of signage to find the trails, many of which branch off this one. It's a well-shaded trail—road, actually—so it's great on a hot day. Pretty much up, up, up on the way to Lake Marie (which is not real impressive, but ok). If you have time, take another trail down instead of the road, just for interest's sake. Going up is not a difficult climb, just relentlessly uphill.

Beautiful in the spring! Super green and beautiful wild flowers

lots of elevation change but beautiful in winter! some trails still recovering from fire

The fire destroyed quite a bit of beautiful scenery but, it also created a different kind of beauty. I went off the "beaten path" as I tend to do. It is well worth the views. Do so at your own risk.

Beautiful day in February (dry times) for this old guy to trapse around the hills. Good workout and nice views.

I did this hike after a couple of days of rain. Trails were a little wet and muddy but not terribly so that it wasn’t enjoyable. Being the middle of winter was also nice because ticks weren’t active. I have heard that they are prevalent during the spring and summer. There is minimal water source so bring your own. You will venture on a couple of creeks and small lake you could get water but be sure to filter. They had just reopened the trails. The fire had hit several sections and they had to clear away lots of burnt trees. Manzanita trail was hit hard. THe Tuteur loop trail was closed. This section is schedule to open in a couple of weeks. The hike had many open views of the Napa valley and even Benicia/Martinez area. A good mix of shade and open area. The hike from Skyline Trail to SugarLoaf Peak was steep and a narrow single track. The fire was evident here as well but one could see young growth already starting. There is biking, horseback as well. There is RV parking and tent camping at the park entrance if you want to make a night of it. Very clean and open. It took me 4.5 hours to do the 8.5 miles perimeters without the Tuteur Trail section. (Including a 30 minute lunch at the top of Sugar Loaf Peak)

Skyline has reopened! THANK YOU to all the volunteers who cleared burnt trees and other vegetation, repaired signs, and got the park back in shape. The rebirth is beautiful.

The Perimeter Loop is moderate except for the climb up to Sugarloaf and it's fairly steep in spots on the way down. It's a beautiful hike.

This is a good hike and doesn't take that long. It's located very close to downtown Napa.

A bit hard to find the trail head from the parking lot but it's a great sunny day hike with deer and turkeys right up to the trail edges. Beautiful views of wineries, downtown Napa and Silverado Trail.

Love this trail. I live just down the road so go on it a lot. Definitely tons of wildlife - NOT the trail to zone out and listen to your music on! Pay attention to snakes, pigs, lizards, turkeys, and deer aplenty. I've never seen a wildcat but know many people who have! I like to go counter-clockwise to kick off the workout in high gear and then take it easy the rest of the time. Also a good out and back if you go counter-clockwise to the Lake Marie and back.

Great trail, with lots of views. You will start sweating early since Skyline Trail has lots of ups early on. Rim Rock is quite a bit of a workout, but you won't find too many people up there, if at all. For an easier loop, cut back at Chaparral. Allow yourself some extra time to sit by the lake and take in the scenery. If you are doing the Rim Rock - there's a few great spots in the shade for lunch.

Parking is $5. Definitely needed the app to keep on the correct trail...there are lots of trails that intersect.

Beautiful trail! A bit exposed to the sun at first, but shaded most of the way thereafter. Lots of lovely wild flowers, and a nice picnic area by the lake where you can relax and eat lunch. Definitely one of those trails that clears your mind of the clutter of every day.

Did the skyline loop to lake marie trail as a run. Well, it was supposed to be a run. Skyline trail killed that plan early on - it's a bit steep for an out of shape fat guy to run much on for the first mile or so at least. Also, there was a lot of poison oak encroaching the trail in several sections, so be aware. If you do Skyline, definitely stick with it around Lake Marie, as that's by far the best part of the hike. I recommend the Chapparal-Lake Marie trail return to make it a full loop.

Great trail that takes you along Lake Marie and up to Sugarloaf with breath-taking views of Napa Valley and San Pablo Bay. Wear comfortable hiking shoes, bring plenty of water, and a snack. Expect to spend about 3-5hrs hiking.

Well marked and maintained trails with beautiful scenery.

Please as always watch where you are walking as we saw our first rattlesnake of the year today.

The trail is a little wet so slick in a few places. The wildflowers are just starting to poke their heads out. Give this park 2 or 3 weeks and it will be perfect! #napapony

Nice trail, great views, good length to give you time to see wineries in the afternoon. Don't be confused by the park's Lower Skyline Trail, this loop actually takes you on the regular Skyline Trail.

Also, I think next time I would do it the opposite direction, going clockwise.

It was as described. Easy to find, a relatively easy walk, good views of the eastern hills, the Vaca Mt.'s of Napa.
