Arroyo Mocho Trail

love this trail!

July, 2020 by tinasaccolorenzini

Great for biking & walking!

Ygnacio Canal Trail

Trail Map needs updating...Can't go through Golf Course!!

July, 2020 by gdavis3000

Tried this trail, but ended in disaster. Starting at the "Heather Park" end, after crossing Marchbanks Rd, I encountered Diablo Hills Golf Course. Map routes through the golf course to Kinross Dr, but once I entered the green, I was "politely" chased away by a lady in a golf cart yelling, "You can't be here... this is private property... you could be killed" (assume she meant by a line-drive).

When you get to Marchbanks Dr, turn left, go down to Ygnacio, hang a right, then pick up the trail.

Walter S. Ueda Parkway Trail

Trail is under levee construction and has been buried in dirt. Hopefully it will still be there when the construction is over.

Iron Horse Regional Trail

Great trail for running, walking and bike riding.

June, 2020 by fabkillian

Lots of families, bike riders and people on parts of the trail through out the day. Lots of places to stop for restroom, food, etc. Safe for single riders.

Cross Alameda Trail

Flat, open space, decent

June, 2020 by alexisohagan

Separate but adjacent trails for bikes and pedestrians. Sandy gravel and asphalt. Next to a multi-lane, high-traffic street. Some young trees planted along the route, but less green than many trails. Largely flanked by dried grass. Best for family bike outings or an easy stroll.

Elk Grove Creek Trail

Very nice trail—not lengthy—but nice.

May, 2020 by dboykin_tl

Nice trail for a no stress, pleasant ride, especially for family bike riding. DAB

Aquatic Park Trail

good for a flat 2-mile walk

March, 2020 by kristy.sidlar

I wasn’t in the mood for hills today and thought this would fit the bill. It was the perfect effort and distance. I didn’t love being so close to the freeway but there was a lot of nature and beauty to distract me.

Corte Madera Creek Path

great for bikes and walking/running, uneven for inline skating

February, 2020 by recoveringsupermom

I started inline skating at Ross (very bumpy start in the parking lot makes for an uncomfortable start). It was smooth sailing, even over the first wooden bridge, until college of marin’s parking lot. The pavement hasn’t been kept up, so it’s pretty bumpy, enough for me to want to go around it next to the trailers until I reached the stree. After crossing it was ok until the second wooden bridge which only Has splintery guard rails. Then it is increasingly bumpy until about the middle school. I turned around there, only Got Half the workout i hoped for.

American River Bike Trail (Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail)

Coming east from Discovery Park is not scenic

February, 2020 by p_massam

Review of the 1st 4 miles coming east from Discovery Park. All four of us started our from Discovery Park and headed east along the trail. The trail itself is very easy and the surface is very smooth. 99% of the faster cyclists were polite and gave us adequate warning of their presence. Alas the first few miles are not very scenic. A lot of litter on the sides of the trail and many tents. Not an area we'd care to cycle in again as a family at the current time.
