Please direct me to best driving roads in and around Napa Valley

To the best driving roads in and around Napa Valley. I was there yesterday, drove some decent twisters but I want to see the "best" driving roads. Thanks in advance!

Too bad you asked about north of the Bay Area. I've got two routes through the Peninsula/South Bay area that total about 400 miles of amazing driving with only about 30 miles in common between the two. The hazard is that a lot of them are only one lane in each direction and no passing zones (or even safe places to pass illegally), so an errant slowpoke could rain on your parade -- but the redwoods sure do make for some gorgeous scenery.

Well not NAPA but for the north bay... have you tried route 1 - Stinson beach from Muir Woods? Also, road to Point Reyes is very nice.


Btw, thanks for the app!

I like driving on 1 both towards Stinson beach as well as down South to Santz Cruz/Monterey. Both are great scenic drives.

Highway 1 then make a right onto Skaggs Springs Road. That will take you to Healdsburg.

I normally take Lucas Valley Road off 101 and head to point Reyes station. Then to the light house. Then head towards Stinson beach from there. Much better than 101 to Stinson from Tiburon.

In Napa, Lake Berryessa is nice as well.

Check this out as well. http://www.norcaldrivers.com/

Also, we're doing a drive on 2/24. Send me PM and I'll give you the details.
