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.


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!!
