Union Valley Bike Trail

Campground with access to awesome trail!!

September, 2022 by carrieiscarebear

Loved this all paved trail! Both great for bikers and hikers! Several beautiful bridges to cross and medium level ability on mountain bikes as there are a few good hills. Gets your heart running!!

Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues 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.

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.

Sacramento Northern Bikeway

Flat, decent ride w/lots of shade

June, 2021 by kimgerly

There were a number of traffic crossings, which can slow one down. But there are actually nice stretches without too much foot traffic, so one can grind hard if a sprint interval workout is the aim. Signage going southbound could be much better marked/made available.

Sure, there are a lot of homeless encampments--now I know where a great deal of the downtown curbside community folks have relocated. However, I found the curbside community folks to be friendly, and will acknowledge one/reciprocate if one pays them respect with a 'Hi/Hello' or a wave--they are human beings after all who have fallen on hard times. They'll even provide recommendations on scenic ride directions off this artery. But if one would prefer to be full of fear, best ride earlier in the day, after sunup, when these folks are likely napping and out of sight.

El Dorado Trail

Diamond Springs to Shingle Springs

May, 2021 by mykgrant

Had my wife drop me off behind Walmart and took the ED trail for the first time to Shingle Springs. I hit record on my Strava app but didn't hit start until I was well into the trip. Darn. No stats this time.

Riding a FS MTB and it had rained about 2 days previously so the weeds weeds were growing in the sun. Super cool to see weeds almost cover the trail. What was left was just a line in the fox tails designating the trail in some spots hiding any rocky, rutted out surprises. There was also some mush and it made me wonder if I was really following the trail into deep water but I was committed.

Absolutely loved the ride and the trail but it was over too soon. Need to expand my use of the trail up and down.

Although there are some historic elements to the trail, do not let the sun go down on ya.
