UC Davis Arboretum and Putah Creek Trails

extra stars because it was pretty

June, 2024 by qdym76h2rq

DO NOT plan to use this trail with inline skates. It was a disaster. Unless you own all terrain skates, these paths are better for walking, cycling.

Ninos Parkway

American River Parkway (Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail)

Awesome trail!

February, 2024 by qk58jcpmdw

We really enjoyed this trail! Great views with lots of places to stop. And plenty of restrooms. We went during the week and there were a lot of people out there. I can imagine it gets pretty crowded on the weekends. But, we would definitely ride this one again.

Sutter Commuter Bikeway

Great path for a little getaway

Sure happy to have this path available for our communities. A great way to get out and get some fresh air and the views.

Miners Ravine Trail

My Perfect Trail

December, 2023 by sfdrummer

I’m from out of town and was looking for a trail on which we could walk our little dog. I was hoping for something flat, safe, well-maintained, and devoid of poison oak. This trail was all of that, with extra bonuses of wide pavement and absolutely gorgeous surroundings. All of us, including my dog, loved it. We’ll be coming back whenever we visit.

Perfect for dirt skateboard there’s places to explore everywhere you go

Black Diamond Railroad Trail

interesting place to explore- go when it’s not too hot

July, 2023 by kawkaw999

Mostly this location is good to hike. MTB was tough since there’s some pretty steep hills and not a ton of room to run. me and my friend had fun but we had to walk our bikes up a couple times. We are also both almost 60 year old women so… Maybe a young 25 year old guy can write up those with no problem …¿ but we didn’t see anybody else riding bicycles there maybe one guy. a lot of the areas are not shaded or protected so don’t go when it’s over 90°. But it’s a beautiful spot with some cool areas to explore. but if I was gonna go back I would probably just go for hiking

Lake Natoma Trail

midnight skateboard

It is really fun

Marsh Creek Regional Trail

trail addition

December, 2022 by 4psb2wyvrd

They have just opened a new addition at the West End of the marsh Creek Trail. You cross over Concord Avenue and continue on for an approximate mile and a half to near the intersection of Vineyard Parkway. And marsh Creek Road

Marsh Creek Regional Trail

Nice pleasant ride

April, 2022 by seansheridans

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