The Napa River Trail, extending North to South from JFK Park to 3rd St, offers a pleasant stroll alongside the picturesque Napa River. This calm, flowing river is a sanctuary for birds and wildlife.

Nicely maintained. No shade makes it pretty hot on a sunny day. Nice to stop at the park to cool off, refill your water at the fountains. The parking lot next to the roundabout was closed on Sunday. Had to park by the performing arts center, but there is a nice trail out the back of the PAC that meets up with the trail. That adds about 3 tenths of a mile.

Very pretty views. Super easy walk. Was just sad at how quick it ended. would be nice if it extended across the street.

What a gorgeous walk! I was sad when we got back to our hotel and it was over.

We went north instead of south on the Napa Vine Trail, towards Oxbow Commons, which has more of a city walk feel than going south to JFK. There's kind of a dull industrial stretch, where you pass the cars for the Napa Wine Train, but it gets lively and fun once you get to 3rd Street and downtown Napa.
