Glen Ellen Carneros Loop

Glen Ellen Carneros Loop

This is a very rewarding route that takes you over the Mayacamas Mountains and into Napa Valley. The retune to Sonoma Valley takes you around the southern edge of the Mayacamas and through the Carneros Wine Region. The main climb is on Cavedale Road which is lightly trafficked and offers many beautiful views of Sonoma Valley. There is a Volunteer Fire Station where Cavedale meets Trinity Road and this is a good spot to top off water bottles (look for the water spigot at the left front corner of the building). On the descent into Napa Valley the road surface is very good but if you are moving fast, and why not, you need to watch out for the switchbacks that can sneak up on you. Enjoy!
