What We Do:
The Napa Valley Vine Trail Coalition is a grass-roots nonprofit with a vision to build a walking and biking trail system to connect the entire Napa Valley‚??physically, artistically, and culturally. We are working to design, fund, construct, and maintain 47 safe and scenic miles of level, paved, family-friendly, pet-friendly, free-access Class I trail, stretching from Vallejo‚??s Ferry to Calistoga.
Who We Are:
Napa County has the highest rates of obesity and diabetes in the Bay Area. But studies show even moderate increases in physical activity reduce stress and lower the risk of many serious health issues. Napa County is also, sadly, in California‚??s top ten counties for bicycle accidents involving motorists‚??and things are getting worse. Separated trails like the Vine Trail are, by far, the safest places to walk, run, or bike. More than 70% of Americans would bike and/or walk more if they felt safe. A safe, free, easy-access biking and walking trail system can significantly improve community health. The Napa Valley Vine Trail will provide this safe trail, for people of all ages to enjoy our valley. Its human scale, continuity, and vast outdoor exhibition space will unify the diverse landscapes and varied communities of this much-visited area. Building on Napa Valley‚??s rich sense of place, the Vine Trail‚??s public art and discovery programs will help transform the path into a true cultural corridor‚??and an inspirational ‚??only in Napa Valley‚?ù landmark for residents and visitors alike. Our public programs, like our monthly Walk with a Doc program and Coffee Ride need volunteers, as well as our Trail Ambassadors, and programs geared toward kids, seniors, locals, and visitors, and anyone who wants to get involved and get out on the trail!
