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.

Trail is nice and in good condition but you ride by many homeless camps/villages.

Lots of wildlife, beautiful place to walk

American River Bike Trail (Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail)

Beautiful river ride

March, 2021 by pcraze

We entered the paved trail off of Expo Parkway near Costco and rode towards the Fish Ladder. It was a beautiful sunny day and lots of trees shade the trail. Perfect cycling weather with temperatures in the 60s. It was a Sunday so the trail was busy, but still very enjoyable. Lots of port-a-pottys along the way. We rode 31 miles out and back, but didn’t go all the way to the fish ladder. We ate lunch at a peaceful spot in the river and saw deer, wild turkeys and ground squirrels. Great ride.

Marsh Creek Trail

nice ride

February, 2021 by jmorasci

Pleasant ride, somewhat busy on weekends. After a windy day you might find lots of twigs and leaves on the path. Crosses a few streets but not much traffic. Could use a trail marker in a couple places. Nice parks along the way but no bathroom except at Veterans Park just off the trail in Brentwood.

Pleasant Grove Creek Trail

Great January trip!

January, 2021 by jyoung8307

My son and I rode this trail. It is well kept, and just enough curves to keep the ride from getting boring. It was busy on this particular beautiful January day.

Marsh Creek Trail

If you need to get aways for a while and out into the open land this is a great little ride, walk or run. There's a bit of poop ¿ on the trail but overall it's beautiful.
