Calistoga Pope Valley Loop

Calistoga Pope Valley Loop

Howell Mountain Road is a popular climb for cyclists. It has a moderate and consistent grade and there is very little traffic. Once past Angwin you are treated to a fast downhill on excellent pavement. Then the climb back over the hills to Napa Valley takes you up Ink Grade Road. This is another favorite for cyclists. Very remote and scenic with scarce traffic. Deer Park is a fast downhill but beware of traffic that will be going faster. Traffic is moderate and I’ve always found it easy to stay in the traffic lass when going through the switchback or when I’m making a scary right turn From Sanitarium onto Crystal Springs Road. That turn will sneak up on you so start slowing after you pass the Hospital on your left.
