Volunteer Firehouse is the finish of the Trinity West climb.
Trinity West ranks #12 on the Tri-County Top 25 list, with Fiets Index of 3.67. This is a favorite climb for local cyclists and is one of the few connectors between Napa and Sonoma Counties. The views are not spectacular, but the climb is challenging and generally a steady 6-10% from start to finish. The finish of this climb is at the intersection of Cavedale and Trinity Roads at the Mayacamas Volunteer Fire Station, where there is normally water and a cycling pump -- it is "cyclist friendly" (Thank you MVFD!).
Start is just east of Highway 12.
Fair warning . . .
. . . but, seems like a bit of overkill . . .
Just past the start -- May 17, 2020.
Beware on the descent.
One of the most dangerous in the county.
