The detailed September 2013 Project Plan updates the 2009 Case Statement with a clear focus on the Vine Trail portion of Napa County’s Countywide Bike Plan (NCTPA) and Napa County Regional Park & Open Space District’s Master Trail Plan. The Project Plan describes the compelling need for the continuous Vine Trail, the community response to meet that need, its design/engineering, its costs, its unique funding approach and the benefits of completing this 47-mile “heart and spine” of alternate transportation and recreational infrastructure.

The Vine Trail is the key countywide connector in the NCTPA Countywide Bike Plan 2012.
By 2010, this 2009 fundamental study and statement of the Vine Trail's purpose and plans had been approved by all relevant (city, county, state, federal) governing bodies. Read about our original cost estimates and other details by downloading the Case Statement here.
The idea for the Vine Trail owes a lot to the 2008 Napa Greenway Feasibility Study which emerged in response to the Napa Valley's commitment to providing transportation options, tourism opportunities, and a strong desire to enhance the quality of life for residents throughout the valley. The Greenway is an opportunity to draw on the superlative qualities of the region. This study was published by the Napa Valley Transportation & Planning Agency (NCTPA.net) February 10, 2009 and led directly to the NVVT Case Statement (below).
