Pope to Putah Overnight – with Llamas!
The Pope to Putah Trail in Napa County is a moderate-to-difficult 10 mile (round-trip) hike. The trail climbs and descends the hills between Pope Creek and Putah Creek – two of the streams the feed Lake Berryessa. It is steep in some sections but recent re-routes have increased the enjoyment of the trail. Hikers are treated to panoramas of Pope Valley as well as views of Spanish Valley. There is a large meadow near where the trail meets up with Putah Creek which is a great camping area. The next morning, participants will return to the trailhead with an optional side trip along Walter Hill Trail (1.5 mile). This beautiful trail will really immerse the hiker in the wilderness and gives them the opportunity to see an “unexplored” area in the Lake Berryessa region.
Eric “Bam Bam” Barnett, Tuleyome’s Trail guru spearhead the construction of this trail and will lead hikers along the trail. This year, we will be assisted by llamas, which will carry some of our gear to make the trip a little more enjoyable.
