INTRO

This side of Mt Veeder is less steep but still gains a some elevation. It is a great connection back to Dry Creek and into Santa Rosa. It is shady so summer is a great time to ride, winter plan on a wet and slightly twisty downhill.

A great Napa climb. The road surface was repaved in 2022 with chip n seal. One year has helped smooth it out and excess gravel is gone so the descent if you turn around at the summit is a pleasure. The much beloved Popeye and Oliveoyl landmark is sadly decomposing. 😢

CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Mt. Veeder Road from the south

Ride 4.3 miles gaining 1,026’ at 4.5% average grade.

Mt. Veeder is one of the secret jewels of wine country climbing.  Tucked away in the middle of the southern Mayacama Mountain Range, it has no distinct beginning from a major highway like its neighbors Oakville Grade to the east and Trinity and Cavedale to the west.  Mt. Veder can be accessed easily from the south (town of Napa via Redwood Road), from the east (Oakville Grade/Dry Creek) and the north  (Trinity/Dry Creek Roads).

   

Mt. Veder  is less spectacular from the south than north, but still a very nice Wine Country climb.

Finish

Roadway surface/Traffic:  The roadway is narrow with no bike lane or marked shoulder, and is in mildly poor condition in spots (mainly on the north side).  However, you will encounter very little traffic on this climb which we rate as very safe and well worth the effort.

That’s a wrap!!
