But it’s a Challenge to Complete the Trail - by Philip Sales
The readers of the North Bay Bohemian newsweekly voted the VINE TRAIL the Best Bike Route/Trail in Napa County for the fourth year in a row. I also want to recognize our public agency partners, Napa Valley Transportation Authority, Solano Transportation Authority, Napa County, the City of Napa, and the Town of Yountville, the City of American Canyon, the City of Calistoga, the City of St Helena and the City of Vallejo who have worked so hard making it happen.
Although we are thrilled to be nominated and awarded this honor for the fourth year, it reminds us that we need to complete the VINE TRAIL. We have completed just over twenty miles of the trail but there are still twenty-seven miles to build.
This past year almost 523,000 people used the VINE TRAIL, a 46% increase over 2019. The VINE TRAIL has not only become an important part of the everyday life of Napa residents but also our visitors upon whom so much of our economy depends.
