Climb Summary


Climb Summary

Mt. Veeder is one of the secret jewels of wine country climbing, particularly Mt. Veeder North.  Tucked away in the middle of the southern Mayacama Mountain Range, it has no distinct beginning from a major highway like its neighors 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 west (Trinity/Dry Creek Roads).

As can be seen from the Slideshows and YouTube videos, Mt. Veder North is shaded throughout, climbing through tall and majestic redwoods for stretches and with some exceptional views of Napa Valley.

Mt. Veder South is less spectacular, but still a very nice Wine Country climb.

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.
