It a nice trail for the family I took my electric board there and it was fun.

Sacramento River Parkway Trail

scooter riders need to check this out

November, 2020 by savana350

This trail is perfect for those who are scooter riders. This trail is smooth, long and a few curves and little hills here and there. There are hardly any pedestrians or bike riders. My husband and I recently bought scooters and have been looking for somewhere we can get some speed and just cruise without all the traffic. Not the most scenic. You can jump off the trail in spots and take a break.

Elk Grove Creek Trail

Trail not suited for advanced cyclists

October, 2020 by hereforfun

Was hoping to find a trail that was smooth, medium fast to fast. This trail is more suited to bring your family out and cruise. The trail has very short sections before coming to intersections were you have to stop for traffic many times. Also, the trail is not in the best of shape. There are areas where the bushes encroach the trail and the pavement is bumpy. One section I had to stop and check my tires for goathead thrones. Would not recommend this trail if your looking to log miles on your road bike. Again, nice trail to put-put around with your family. I rode it on a Sunday and only saw a few people on it.

Western States Pioneer Express Recreation Trail

Great for trail running

October, 2020 by cclyddon

Great for hiking or trail running. Scenic views of the river. Mostly shaded in the segment from Oregon Bar heading southwest.

Two Rivers Trail

Gone Downhill...

September, 2020 by filegod

Not really a bad trail, no benches, restrooms or water, the last time I rode it there were so many homeless tents one after another you could walk on them and never touch the ground! you are right next to the river unlike the main bike trail though so it may be a good way to see tons of boats on the river on the 4th of July!

Yolo Causeway Bike Path

Shade?!?

September, 2020 by filegod

The only shade is from mosquitoes, there was no water, restrooms or benches, just call it a different view of the bypass with plenty of noise from the freeway, I turned back towards Sacramento about as soon as I crossed the bypass, my brother went into Davis, I think most of the riders that use it live in Davis and I guess it gets used by commuters, do not expect it to be nice as the American River Bike Trail...

Marsh Creek Trail

Different types of trail along the way

August, 2020 by ecvalen878

One end of the trail is near our house. We have the tree lined area, which is nice in summer. We have done other parts of the trail which are more open. Different parts of the year you can see Salmon spawning, after Halloween around Delta Road part of the trail.

Pleasant Grove Creek Trail

Nice but short trail.

August, 2020 by kctmatsu

We started at William Hughes park. The park doesn’t have much parking so on weekends you may have to park in the neighborhood. You’ll see both families walking as well as bikers from the neighborhoods on this trail. The trail is rather short but nicely paved and not a lot of hills. While riding saw several riders going back and forth on my ride.

Folsom South Canal Recreation Trail

Smooth, long, boring, isolated

August, 2020 by tdnishio

I parked the north end point, at the Nimbus Fish hatchery. There are 2 parking lots, the first has a timed gate that closes at 3 pm. The second, just the next parking lot, driving west, sign said Regional II, was open, no gate. There are no signs to the canal. I spoke with another biker who gave me the direction from the parking lot. Proceed west 2 blocks residential area to the stop light. Turn left, you will then see the canal with entrance on the right. There are mileage signs till mile 13. Thinking this was 15 miles trail, I kept going climbing thru the gate at Sloughouse, mile 13.9. I should not have. There are no mileage marker, there are difficult to see small markers on the asphalt. The canal trail soon ends anyway. The Park n Ride lot on Hwy. 16 can be used as a south starting point.

American River Bike Trail (Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail)

Beals Point

August, 2020 by kctmatsu

There is a $12 fee to park because it is a State Park. If you want to get to lake you’ll have a little walk because Folsom Lake is low right now. If you’re looking to jump on your bike and ride this is a nice starting point. We were there the first week of August and it was a little warm. I would recommend lots of water. The trail has some inclines so be aware you’ll get a little exercise. I would recommend this trail. It is paved and seem to be pretty well maintained.

Folsom South Canal Recreation Trail

A Good Place to Practice

August, 2020 by monika20s

A nice place for bikes without automobile or pedestrian interference. I completed my first 20+ mile ride done on this trail. One spot stunk like fertilizer. Almost 0 shade, so make sure you have your sun protection on.
