Stebbin Cold Canyon Reserve Putah Creek Wildlife Area

2011-10-01 Partly sunny, temps in the 70’s.

We did the 5 mile loop, starting at Homestead trail and ending on the Blue Ridge trail. The views from the Blue Ridge Trail are phenomenal, but to get there is a trek.

It’s a civilized hike, for they have built in stairs. Be very grateful. This was a workout hike. Shady in the beginning when on Homestead, but opens up completely once on Blue Ridge.

Blue Ridge Trail

Word of caution: Poison oak lurks all around!

Don’t forget your camera or water. If you plan correctly you can have a nice lunch with a fantastic view of Lake Berryessa on top of the Blue Ridge trail. It makes a nice break in the hike.

We were covered in dirt and happy by the time we got home.

Trailhead: 38.51° N 122.1° W
Elevation: 330 feet

    WOW!! Awesome photos. I’ve been out there twice hiking on the low elevation parts of the trail, but I’ve got to get up on the Ridge Trail next time I’m there.
