One of the best views of Napa region. I preferred the fire trail and scenery in Jack London State Park however.
Not sure the exact year but climbed this as an outing while staying at Harbin Hot Springs.
Hiked up with Ezra Danciu and Hugo Pimentel. About four inches of snow at the top.
Once in 2001 and once in 2005. When in Napa Valley, I like to hike in the morning, and drink wine in the afternoon...
Had to be down and back in Calistoga before wife woke up. Just bonus on a wine tasting trip. About 2.5 hours r/t.
A fine day in Napa with MaiAnh. 3.5 hrs round trip. Great views the whole way. Fairly crowded with hikers and climbers on the descent.
road hike to a good viewpoint
Training hike with 50#s of water. Plenty of snow on the top and heavy snow was falling as I headed down. Took the climbers route down to save some time. Not a good idea in the rain!
Road my bike up, boring ride, great views from the top though. Got napa county high point which is pretty pointless since your looking down at it from the main summit
Although the weather was bad, I still made it.
Duration: 4 hours 7 minutes
Length: 12.4 miles
Average Speed: 3 mph
Vertical Change: 3060 feet
Kinda spooky hike out in the dark, but great sunset from the top. Glad the creeps didnt break into my car.
Successful climb to North Peak, but spaced out and missed county high point at East Peak! Unbelievable disappointment for neophyte county high pointer!! Thankfully Cobb Mt. was blunder free! It's a pretty boring out and back but for the views...guess I'll have to return for the East Peak at a later date.
Hit the trailhead at 4:30 AM and bike/hiked 2 miles before sunrise. Three more miles and I was alone at the top for an hour before two trucks came racing up the fire road to work. Awesome views of every Mountain I've climbed or want to climb. Shasta here I come! Car broken into and random items stolen. Go ahead and wrap that phone charger around your neck. Don't leave your car in the Dark! The sunrise was nice but not worth the Banditos.
Cool but sunny day.
The good: Great views of the valley once you're about a third of the way up. The only vertical of much significance that's nearby if you live in the Napa area.
The bad: The summit itself is less than stellar and the views of the valley don't improve past mile 2. However, if it's an exceptionally clear day you can see a lot from the summit. Also, this would be a great spot for sunrise or sunset photography.
is 99% of the hike and pretty dull. Nice views from the top. Interesting old outhouse on the summit.
After a morning of climbing at the Far Side I will hike to the summit before heading back to Marin for a couple cold ones at Marin Brewing Company
Leisurely bike ride up the road to the summit. Biked over to St Helena East for the Napa COHP, then bombed down the road to SR 29 in under 10 minutes, then went to Cobb Mtn for the Sonoma COHP.
Up the fairly boring fire road. Nice clear day but extremely windy.
