Lafayette-Moraga Regional Trail

Emerald Gemstone of a Ride

July, 2022 by dmurphy52

If you're a fan of dedicated bike paths, and in the area, don't miss the opportunity to ride Lafayette-Moraga. Almost the entirety of the path is along a shaded corridor, gently curving back and forth, beautiful homes visible in wooded settings, quirky sections (e.g. a brief segment with many dozens of miniature bird houses hanging from trees), St. Mary's of Moraga's beautiful campus visible at one point.

I'd recommend starting from the Lafayette side. This trail is not flat: the out and back registered 600 vertical feet on Ride with GPS. Starting on the Lafayette side will result in about 5 miles of mildly climbing trail, a descent of about 2 miles at the far end, and then a somewhat steeper (but not steep) climb back to the summit. The last 4.75 miles of a round trip to Lafayette involves a swooping and delightful descent back to where you started. While the climbing is not negligible, it is well within the capabilities of even moderately fit riders.

My partner and I rode this trail on our tandem trike on a Wednesday, finding light to moderate foot and bike traffic. If you're family oriented, use caution with the younger riders, as on the downhill slopes some riders will be coming down in excess of the 15 mph speed limit.

Overall, a gem of a ride, scenic, interesting, and just enough of a challenge to feel that your heart and lungs benefited from a great day outside.

Marsh Creek Trail

Nice pleasant ride

If you start from Oakleys Big Break until the End in Brentwood it’s about a 20 mile RT. Safe, nice sites.

Johnny Cash Trail

“…and it burned, burned, burned…” my legs oh fire.

February, 2022 by kw99fyq8rg

I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. The ride up the hill is quite the workout. You will feel it in your legs. When you hit the top, the views are breathtaking. Beautiful views of green pastures toward Folsom Prision. The ride back down the hill is so freakin fun. It was a blast from beginning to end. ***Word to the wise, I’m not sure this is a good trail for kids. It’s pretty tough for the first 1/3 of the trail and the ride down hill really picks up quickly.

American River Parkway (Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail)

Go-to locale for bike riding throughout the year

January, 2022 by jerrbeck

My wife and I have cycled in many scenic places in the USA, Canada, Europe, and Mexico. Some of these trips have been 3-months long, but when we return to the ARBT we are amazed at how spectacular it can be throughout the entire year. We are fortunate to be able to ride almost every day of the year in Sacramento and the ARBT certainly facilitates our riding throughout the entire Sacramento area.

Lafayette-Moraga Regional Trail

Fun biking trail for family

December, 2021 by rmarcial

We went on this trail yesterday and really liked it! There’s a little bit of up and down, but an ambitious 9 year old and a reluctant 12 year old did it on bikes with gears. Do not park at the southern most lot, though as the path is closed a mile after starting due to a bridge being under construction. Start at the second lot going north at St. Mary’s and Moraga.

Folsom South Canal Recreation Trail

Rode this trail from Elk Grove via Grant Line to Folson Rec. Area while visitingfor the holidays. Nice flat trail, great for getting away from the traffic. Pretty impressed with the trail system out here, you can get 50 plus miles out of it.

Sacramento River Parkway Trail

This trail is still closed in October 2021

The short portion below the museum of Science and curiosity was nice and then the short portion through Old Town was also fun. The rest was navigating through one run down neighborhood after another.

Way to much gravel on the trail. Also, large cracks through paved areas.
