Grab one of North Block’s complimentary GenZe electric bikes and take your own, self-guided art tour. Over the past 10 years, Yountville has added more than 65 outdoor sculptures around town—from stone mushroom-forest sculptures to renowned artist Jedd Novatt’s oversized geometric installation, ‘Chaos Pamplona’. For a little more info on the artists, take docent-led tours, available May through October. You’ll find most of the pieces are available for purchase.

Bale Grist Mill State Park

Learn about the history of this water-powered grist mill, one of the few still in operation. This historic site was the hub where settlers gathered to have their grain ground into flour. Milling demonstrations and historic tours are offered on weekends, and visitors can hike the moderate Bale Grist Mill History Trail, a 2.3-mile loop with beautiful wild flowers and birding that’s accessible year-round.
