Description

Robert Louis Stevenson State Park is a mountain biking gem in the heart of California wine country. Located on the flanks of Mt. St. Helena, Robert Louis Stevenson State Park is named for the famous writer who once lived here. The park is designated open space, encompassing almost 1000 acres of terrain.

The biking in Robert Louis Stevenson State Park is mainly on old fire roadways that twist up the mountainside. A ride in the RLS State Park is not for the faint of hear or lung, with elevation gain of almost 2000 vertical feet over 7 miles. Once atop Mt. St. Helena, expansive views of the Napa Valley and as far away as Mt. Shasta open up as the ride traverses from the South Summit to the North Summit of the mountain.

The North Summit is the turn-around point on the ride. Steep climbing on the way up makes for an exhilarating return ride.
