Turk’s Head

September 16 (Thursday): Turk’s Head

Leaders: Bruce & Janet Ivey

Rating: Moderate, 4 miles,< 1k ft elevation gain

This hike at Robert Louis Stevenson State Park goes to an uncrowded area on the southern flank of Mt. St. Helena. We’ll pass through the site of Silverado City (population 1,500 in the mid-1870s), then on to Turk’s Head—a rock formation on the ridge separating Knight’s Valley from upper Napa Valley.

This was a common destination in the late 1800s for tourists staying at the Toll House on the old stagecoach road from Calistoga to Middletown. Our slow-to-moderate pace will allow time for picture taking and enjoying the views.
