This loop takes you along the beautiful Silverado Trail, a quiet road that parallels Route 29, the busier traffic artery through the Napa Valley. Catch a glimpse of the nation's foremost wine region as it was decades ago. As the roadway dips and curves along the foothills, it offers gorgeous views of vineyards and mountains.

Don't know what to do with that spare hubcap you've been hauling around? You can add yours to the collection of over 5,000 displayed at Litto's Hubcap Ranch in Pope Valley. For over thirty years until he died at age 93, Litto Damonte, the proclaimed "Pope Valley Hubcap King," collected thousands of hubcaps, continuing his grandfather's dream of making a hubcap heaven. It's now California Historical Landmark No. 939. Just look out for the glittering discs shining in the sun - and wear your shades.
