From Napa simply head east on route 121 till it T's into route 128. You then want to take a left on to route 128 and take it north/northeast for about 4.5 miles until you see Berryessa Knoxville Rd on the right. Take a right onto Berryessa Knoxville Rd and now enjoy the ride along the lake for about 15 beautiful miles. That's what I call the end point but actually you could continue on the road and it would take you all the way up to Clear Lake. If you decide to go all the way to Clear Lake, Berryessa turns into Co Rd 140 (Morgan Valley Rd.). Take a left on Hwy. 50, going North and this will drop you into Clear Lake.
This is the hills of the Napa Valley. Windy roads with plenty of places to pull off and suck in the view. Then you travel about 15 magnificent miles as the road that hugs the shore of wonderful Lake Berryessa..
While there are some parts in disrepair the over all quality of the road is awesome
There's really not much along the way but on Sunday mornings there's a restaurant that gets full of bikes of all types where 121 and 128 meet. But you'll be taking this route for the scenery and not the amenities.
