DescriptionSteady three and a half mile climb to the first East peak. Steady five mile climb to the taller West peak. First mile single track from the West parking lot at the top of the HWY 29 summit is appropriate for hiking and runners with some technical ability. It passes through the RLS State Park memorial marker. Otherwise, 1/8 mile north of the HWY 29 summit is some more parking and the fire road, which is recommended for mountain bikers and hikers or runners looking for a slightly longer but much less technical climb the first mile. Beautiful views during the climb and at the top of the Napa Valley and the bay area. Immediately to the north you can see The Geysers, the largest geothermal energy facility in the world. On a clear day you can see Mount Shasta and Mount Lassen to the North; the Pacific Ocean to the West; the Sierras to the East; and Mount Diablo, the Bay Bridge, and San Francisco to the South.
