Bubba SuessThe Wine Country Mountain  Sucess!

Bubba Suess

In many ways, this is THE mountain of the wine country. It looms over both Napa and Sonoma counties.

Hiked up with my cohp buddy Jeff. We were first on trail and made it home in time for the kickoff. Saw lots of people on the way down! The first mile of this hike is excellent single track. We enjoyed the fire road portion too as the views of napa valley are excellent. Hazy up top but saw, Cobb, Diablo, Tam, Lassen and Snow mtns. I'll do it again for conditioning.

Reasonably quiet hike, took a little over 2 hours to reach the North Peak summit. Summit was very windy and pretty cold. Views were great, though pretty hazy. Could easily see Cobb and Mt. Diablo. Barely visible were the snow-capped Sierras and the SF skyline. Luckily I got to the mountain early, cause the parking along 29 is packed by mid-day, and a pain to get out of sometimes.

I don't quite remember the date but it was when I was living in the Santa Rosa area during the '90's.

Started at 7am just as the sun rose. The nice weather lasted until I reached the saddle, when the clouds rolled in and the temperature dropped to 38 degrees F! Some patches of snow at the top but it's mostly gone.

A long walk up the dirt road was made better by great views and a lack of anyone else on the trail.

Ok, so I actually rode my mountain bike for this one, though I did walk some of the uphill. : ) Nice view from the top with lots of sunshine. Still had some snow on the mountain.

Hiked to the summit on a very warm spring day. The road is shadeless and dusty, and pretty unpleasant. But the views from the summit were outstanding.

Brought a group of 15 from St. Mary the Virgin Episcopal Church in SF - ages 12 to probably 64. It had rained a lot Friday, but it was sunny and warm Saturday, up in the 60s. The only mud we encountered was in the parking area. Everybody summitted, and we could see all of the landmarks as advertised - Lassen, Snow, Diablo, Tam, and the ocean. A beautiful hike all around.



Someone should relocate and renovate the marker comemorating the 1841 ascent by the Russian party from Ft. Ross. There is an ugly radio outbuilding right beside, marginalizing and offending the marker.

Hiked with Bob Evans followed by lunch at the Culinary Institute and some wine tasting. We started early but it got fairly warm on the descent. We only saw a group drive up to the summit in a Jeep and a lone moutain biker on the trail. There were some decent views from the summit with a slight haze, however it was still nice to get above the valley since I've been to there for wine tasting several times.

This was the first of a two county high point day. Also did Mount Vaca in Solano County. This is a busy place. I thought I left late, 8:20 a.m., and yet was one of the first ones up. There were alot of people headed up in the warmer part of the day as I descended. I also found the start of a mine shaft just off the main road. An enjoyable hike.



There were many hot air balloons in the Napa Valley on the drive in. That was cool!

Did the hike with a buddy, who continually told me how good a view it was from the top. Well, when we reached the top, all I saw was clouds. Ha! None the less, it was a good day hike!

A highpointing trip with extensive views of the interior of a cloud. I did get some decent views on the way up/down of the northern portion of Napa Valley.
