Mount St. Helena Hike (Nov 29)

posted Nov 16, 2014, 10:22 PM by Unknown user
The most recognizable mountain in California's wine country is Mount St. Helena, rising sharply above the valley just north of Calistoga. The mountain is at the intersection of Sonoma County, Napa County, and Lake County. At 4,343', Mount St. Helena's summit is the second highest mountain in Sonoma County. (The highest point, Cobb Mountain, is not open to the public.) From the summit on a clear day, you can see Lassen Peak, the Sierra Nevada mountains, Snow Mountain, Mount Diablo, Mount Tamalpais, and the Pacific Ocean.  The 10-mile round-trip route to the peak starts in Robert Louis Stevenson State Park, located on Highway 29 about 7 miles north of Calistoga. This is the place where the famous author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped spent his honeymoon in 1880. The views along the road and from the summit make this a must-do hike.
