Bay seniors interested in a different perspective on the wine country night want to consider trying the Palisades which overlooks Calistoga and the Napa Valley from atop Mt.St Helena. This volcanic wall is a mile long but the hike roundtrip is 4.4 miles. Start at the Mt. St .Helena Trail staging area and take the trail to the right. It’s getting late in the season to check out the wildflowers but you’ll likely be watching raptors swooping through the air right in front of you.
