If you look at it on a Napa map, you might pass it by for someplace bigger and wilder like Skyline Park, but on a pleasant afternoon in April, Westwood Hills Park in Napa was just the getaway I was seeking. After parking in the small, free parking lot on Brown’s Valley Road, you’ll walk through the gate into dense forest. Almost immediately the sound of the traffic and sights of civilization are a thing forgotten as you ascend through a gloriously fragrant grove of eucalyptus trees. There are many trails in the park, interconnecting and meandering through groves of live oak, collections of huge moss-covered boulders and sunny wildflower-strewn meadows. There are several benches along the trails and occasional picnic tables positioned for panoramic viewing. The top of the main trail opens up to a broad view of the Napa Valley and beyond. Be prepared for a few steep inclines along the way and wear sturdy shoes that will stand up to the random patch of loose gravel. I brought a hiking staff with me and was glad I did. Be wary of the abundant poison oak – staying to the trails should keep you safe. The park is open from dawn til dusk.
