I've ridden my bike on this trail various times, and it's definitely a nice ride if you catch the tide at the right time. High tide, the water makes the scenery beautiful to gaze at. It's also a good area to walk your dogs around, but be safe around glass beach.

Lots of wildlife, well maintained paths, water station, Glass Beach

Nicely kept and maintained trails.

on Lake Marie Trail

After climbing like crazy all week we were looking forward to an easy trail. Maybe tired legs made this tougher but be prepared for some uphill.

Well. I like this trail better before I realized the hill is basically a giant pimple on the earth. It’s a landfill that was covered in dirt. I mean, yea, it’s great there isn’t exposed landfill just sitting there, and apparently they somehow make energy for electricity from it, but. It just ruined the entire area there for me. It just makes me mad that that was the solution to the landfill. Just bury it? So that all that trash gets to seep into the soil and water around it? Just doesn’t seem smart. Now all I can think about there is how humans are ruining the earth.

This hike.

Features:
A giant man made pimple in the earth. Filled with trash. Yay? :/

If you like to make jerky with your leg skin, then this is the trail for you. lower trail was great, upper trail was hell. over grown with a ton of thorns. ouch

Fun quick trail some good views and not too rough.

perfect Saturday morning running trail.

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.

Hurray, no dogs! The trail begins in town and traffic (park in a nicely paved lot to the left of Streblow Drive), and soon passes into a narrow path between two chain link fences as you escape civilization. After a bit of that, it opens up into a delightful, meandering, well-trod dirt & rock trail that goes all the way to Skyline Wilderness Park. It's definitely an easy hike, though not at all a waste of time.

No dogs allowed.

The trail was fine. It's very wide and there were tons of dogs but there's really no shade at all. Towards the back theres a small offshoot that leads to a river bank but it's not really part of the trail.
If your dog is ok in dog parks this trail is great. There's a fenced in area for dogs next to one of the parking areas.

This is a short easy hike in Napa, that gets you enough elevation so see out into the valley. There is a free paved parking lot at the start. There are many alternative routes. This is definitely a local favorite.

Nice trails, very level...good walking and jogging...lots of birds including beautiful swans...

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 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.

Loved this place, very peaceful and kids enjoy it as well

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.

Closed, gate locked with a sign that says “entry only during posted park hours” that aren’t posted anywhere. 130 on a Sunday is a No I guess. ☹️

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.

Excellent and easy trail for a relaxing (Or fast paced) bike ride.

It's amazing that this area used to be a landfill when I was a kid. It's absolutely beautiful now. Recommend it. 4/5.
Be sure to stop at "Glass Beach."

One hour. Pretty vista. Water in the creeks still. Wide fire trail.

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.
