From the town of Winters, take Hwy 128 West towards Lake Berryessa. Shortly after leaving town, the road will begin to follow Putah Creek. Eventually you will pass through Canyon Creek Resort – a private campground and RV park. Monticello Dam will be on your right. Continue just a little further up the road and pull in to the dirt parking area on the right (after the bridge and before the hairpin turn). Google maps will take you there.
This trail is a loop, you can hike it in any direction. I prefer the counter clockwise for sweeping views in front of me. The trail begins directly across the road from the dirt lot.
