Smittle Creek – Family Friendly Hike

Bring the kids to Smittle Creek Day Use Area on the western shore of Lake Berryessa. We will hike along the shore, which should provide fantastic views of Lake Berryessa and the Blue Ridge to the east, have a picnic lunch, and generally let the little ones enjoy the area! This is a short hike with very little elevation gain.

We encourage families who would like to get outside with the kids to join us! Bring lunch (turkey sandwiches are great!), snacks, water, and layers!

Difficulty: Easy – Family Friendly

Length: 0.5 to 5.2 miles (round trip) – length will depend on the group

Terrain & Elevation: small, rolling hills, trail is on a path and some service roads; very little elevation gain/loss

Vegetation & Exposure: oak woodlands; mostly shaded
