He has been involved with the project since 2007 when he headed up the consultant team which authored the "Napa Valley Greenway Feasibility Study" which later became the Vine Trail.
Philip is a Landscape Architect and has spent almost all his professional life working on trails and public open space projects including two decades as Chief of Park Planning for the Sonoma County Regional Parks Department. As a consultant his projects include trail planning work for the Humboldt Bay Trail, Lake Tahoe, Lake County and Palm Springs.
Chuck McMinn is the founder and board president of the non-profit Napa Valley Vine Trail Coalition. Under his visionary leadership, the Vine Trail board team has grown, since the fall of 2008, to include over 32 members and organizations representing a broad spectrum of community and civic interests. This dedicated all-volunteer team along with two 3/4 time staff members share a vision to build a continuous 47-mile trail connecting the entire Napa Valley from Vallejo’s Ferry Terminal to the foot of Mount St. Helena in Calistoga.
