Silverado Trail


United States,

As Napa Valley became a hotbed during the silver rush in the 1850’s, the Silverado Trail was completed for a more efficient route between the southern end of Napa and northern end of Calistoga. Vineyards were planted more frequently along this road in the 1870’s, with more than 40 wineries now located along its path. Visitors to the area can drive the 29-mile route to visit these wineries, both large and boutique, and take convenient exits to the five major towns of Napa, Yountville, Oakville, St. Helena, and Calistoga. Resorts and restaurants are also located sporadically along the road.
