The Napa River Trail parallels its namesake river through the City of Napa from Kennedy Park to just south of Trancas Crossing Park. It is currently open in two disconnected segments.
The southern segment, which follows the east bank of the river from Kennedy Park to just shy of 3rd Street, shares the route with the Vine Trail. Kennedy Park is nestled against the Napa River and has something for the entire family to enjoy. Not only is there a playground for the kids, but numerous outdoor recreational activities including a golf course and picnic tables. It ends near downtown Napa, where you will have access to various shops and restaurants. One unique attraction is the Napa Valley Wine Train. After a day out on the trail, you can treat yourself to some wine and fine dining aboard this railway adventure.
The northern segment follows the river's west bank from Lincoln Avenue to Trancas Street. On one side of the route you will find quiet residential neighborhoods and, on the other side, is the wooded Napa River.
Most visitors arrive to the Napa area via State Highway 29 from the south. Exit Highway 29 on Soscol Avenue and proceed to Streblow Drive to access Kennedy Park at the south end of the trail, where ample parking is available.
Parking is available at the north end of the trail in the Trancas Crossing Park off Trancas Street near Old Soscol Way. The north terminus of the trail is on the southern side of Trancas Street.
Parking between the two ends of the trail is limited.
