Skyline Wilderness Park was created by the Napa Community. The trails were built by neighbors and have been maintained by volunteers. The park has become home to groups, each supporting each other’s use and membership. It is unique in Napa County, and perhaps anywhere in the country. It is self-supporting and uses no tax dollars. None. Volunteers provide much of the labor to keep the park maintained and improving, and the financial costs of maintaining the park are supported by fees paid by users and groups in the “lower” flat part of the park along Imola Ave.

The integrity of Skyline Wilderness Park is at risk. Napa County and the State of California have targeted the west field of the park as land to develop for housing. The state has planned for the first five acres of the west field to be developed, and has designated another 15 acres suitable for development. This plan will kill the park as we know it. In addition to the immediate loss of camping, equestrian activities, and space for large group activities and community gatherings, the loss of park revenue will mean that the rest of the park will not be maintained as it has been. The park’s trails have seen more use than ever in the last few years and without money to pay staff, that maintenance will cease and the trails will become degraded and dangerous, potentially forcing closure.

We need your help. Please do these things.
