A ceremony was held on Saturday, Sept. 25 to celebrate the opening of the new North End Trail along Lake Berryessa.
“This trail represents a shared vision and years of collaboration between (the U.S. Bureau of) Reclamation and Tuleyome, a state nonprofit conservation organization working to provide access to public lands since 2002. With a formal partnership in 2013, Tuleyome secured grant monies through (California) to fund trail construction,” the bureau, Tuleyome and the Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District announced last Friday.
The scenic trail is 7.5 miles and winds along the northwest shore of the lake. It is open to hikers and cyclists, and is rated as an easy path. The trail provides views across the lake to the Blue Ridge mountains, 15 miles away. Birdwatchers may be able to see white pelicans, golden and bald eagles, Western grebes and osprey in the area.
