ON THE LAND
At just about 2.2 miles round trip, Westwood Hills is a perfect hike for all skill levels. Your rewards for this short uphill trek are sweeping views of downtown Napa.
The 3 miles of trails at Alston Park take you along the Redwood creek. Situated at the base of Mount Veeder, this hike takes you winding right past nearby wineries. And it’s dog-friendly!
For those looking for a less strenuous outdoor experience, the Napa Art Walk is an ideal way to get outdoors. Start your stroll at art installations #8 and #9, located just behind the Napa River Inn.
