Calistoga, California Map

Nice and cool hike in mid-May that follows a pretty stream. Trail is within Bothe-Napa Valley State Park, so if you are driving in and want to park at the trailhead it's $8/car. Ritchey Canyon Trail starts off as Redwood Trail and you have quite a few options for making the hike longer or shorter. Great for trail running or biking.

Came here last week when it was a bit foggy. There were very few people on the trail and it was absolutely gorgeous with the fog all around during the ascent. Good workout and Calistoga has a lovely down town to see after the hike. I'm coming back tomorrow and look forward to spending more time on the trail.

start early! male sure you leave no valuables in your locked car!!! awesome hike with rewarding views. *** climbers, please be careful- rescues can be daunting here... saw a fallen climber yesterday at Bubble. he was eventually airlifted out but it was quite an ordeal... hope he makes it.

A gorgeous valley hike following the creek (seasonal). This hike scales well to different adventurer levels. I suggest making it up to Coyote Peak for a lunch stop. Has a nice vista from there. Lots of Redwoods, Valley Oaks, wild flowers, Douglas firs, and mature Manzanita. Would be a pleasant hike on a hot day.

What a view!

Good views but as other reviews have said, not the most interesting hike after the first mile since it's just a fire road. Took me about 3 hours to get up to the summit in 90 degree weather.
