Skyline Park is an 850-acre wilderness area managed by a non-profit organization formed to protect the area. Situated at the southeast corner of Napa, Skyline Park is home to an abundance of wildlife, including deer and wild turkey. The park features over 25 miles of trails for hiking, biking and equestrian use.
“Ranger Mom” will help you find the best adventure for you. The two-and-a-half mile main road leads to Lake Marie at the eastern end. There’s also an alternate route along the ridge trail which is a much better workout, but is a more challenging hike (this is the one we chose!). From this trail on a clear day, you can see San Francisco Bay, Mt. Tamalpais and Mt. Diablo. Skyline also offers picnic and barbecue areas, an RV park, and tent camping. Daily visitor’s fee is $5.00 per vehicle for hiking and picnicking, $6.00 per vehicle for mountain bikes and horses. RV camping is $32/$35 per site, and tent sites $25. 07-252-0481. 2201 Imola Ave., Napa. •skylinepark.org.
