Written DirectionsThis route will take you between near St. Helena and Winters California. You are just following SR-128 through the Vaca Range and past the southern end of lake Berryessa
SceneryThis road takes you through wooded canyons of the Vaca Range and along the southern edge of Lake Berryessa. At the western end you will also follow along the quaint Capell Creek. At the eastern end you will follow along the larger Putah Creek which sports lazy turns and shady banks.
Drive EnjoymentThis road features 5-star pavement but the score is downgraded to 4 stars due to rare occurrences of a small amount of gravel debris along the eastern portion near Berryessa, estimated to occur around 10% of rides in this rider's experience. Otherwise excellent road quality; no pott holes, appropriate banking, and both tight and more leisurely twisties. Very light traffic except at the western edge where traffic is light-moderate due to visitors to the vineyards.
Tourism OpportunitiesBoth St. Helena and Winters have gasoline, service, and food/drink available. At the west end, consider visiting one of the many world class vineyards of Napa Valley (Frog's Leap, Beringer, Silver Oak, etc.).
