Once you get to American Canyon

Get back to basics, soak up the fresh air, and take in breathtaking views at the 620-acre Newell Open Space Preserve. Admire the old barn, about one mile into the hike, and be on the lookout for grazing, free-range cattle. Want a water view? Follow the flat, 1.4-mile Napa River Bay Trail. When it’s time to refuel, enjoy housemade pasta at Ristorante La Strada, or satisfy your sweet tooth at Le Paris Artisan & Gourmet Cafe. Golfers can tee off at Eagle Vines or Chardonnay Golf Club. The aptly-named Chardonnay course meanders through acres of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapevines.
