Dry Creek Trail (Modesto)

Nice, flat, pretty trail

May, 2017 by bobdudeeb

Had a nice relaxing ride along the trail in May. Weather was sunny but pleasant. The trail description is accurate: the trail follows Dry Creek, which had water after the Winter's heavy rains. The trail passes through several parks, as well as oak trees and grassland. We saw several people walking and biking on the trail, but it was not nearly as crowded as the Crystal Springs Trail. Recommended for Spring and Fall and possibly Winter, if it's not raining. Can be very hot in the Summer.

Dry Creek Trail (Modesto)

bike ride

May, 2017 by ghorney33

Nice calm cool day for a ride this morning, a few dips and curves beautiful scenery that was mountain and a meadow like. Good for my son and I to try out as we are both not used to long rides yet but hope to continue to learn and gather more experience while enjoying some nature.

Marsh Creek Trail

Thumbs up for Marsh Creek Trail (southern half)

November, 2016 by cherylremillard

Road north from Concord Avenue up to Brentwood Boulevard. Trail was flat and very well maintained and clean. Only once was there any question about which way it went and we found it very quickly. Was surprisingly deserted on a late Saturday afternoon. The trail parallels the Creek and passes some fields and parks as well as the backs of houses. There were some underpasses and some places where we had to cross a road, but car traffic was light. I look forward to riding Marsh Creek Trail all the way up to Big Break.

If you want your wheels chewed up by the jagged rock, be my guest. My husband and I ended up skating around town because it was much smoother!!

French Camp Slough Trail

5 mile run

September, 2016 by emmgland

We went on a 5 mile run this morning. It was a nice trail with 75% of it having a river view which was nice! However, there is absolutely no shade so I suggest sunscreen and being done by 11am especially in the summer.

Merced River Trail

The Grumpy Old man

May, 2016 by c_dier

05/28/2016 Unshaded - Yes; limited.
Tons of sticker bushes - 5 varieties.
Challenging - Meh; Mostly flat with small inclines.
Watch for gopher/varmint holes.

Was easy to find on the Briceburg side. This trail was enjoyable, mostly. Bring your non-cloth hiking boots/shoes or wind up with "Bullet Ant" shoes.

The best part? The "rock fairy" a nice gentleman named Eric. Was very informative about geology.

Next trip is hike upstream, raft down stream.

Arroyo Mocho Trail

Different View!

May, 2016 by calosi

This is a excellent trail for bike riding. The other posts that gave it negative reviews are full of crap.
I ride there all the time and always enjoy it.

West Side Rails (Tuolumne City to North Fork/ Tuolumne River)

Nice and Easy

April, 2016 by chipdier

The trail is mostly gravel until the 4 mile mark then it turns more rugged. About the 7.2m mark the trail becomes overgrown, bring your machete!

Delta de Anza Regional Trail

Parts good, parts poor, some in between

April, 2016 by sailsam

We live less than 2/10 mile from this trail, near Sommersville Road in Antioch.For review purposes there are four distinct parts of this trail
Starting from the east end, where this trail meets up with the Marsh creek trail this trail is good, though better signage would be appreceated, west to Highway 4. It is very flat and some is travelling on rural Delta roads with typical Delta farmland and rural residential land scenery. Going east from there one crosses under the highway and begins a VERY steep, a climb of about a hundred feet in less than 3/4 mile, next to the Antioch water plant with very boring scenery - which you won't notice because you will be working hard unless you stop and look back.On most clear days you will see all the way to the Sierra Nevadas. At the top of the climb, you enter a residential area and then start downhill along the canal. The canal is on one side of the trail, which is in a pleasantly naturally landscaped strip behind homes. This is a pleasant slightly downhill ride, with a few road crossings, al the way to Somersville Road, a little over 6 miles. Then south along Somersville a short distance to where the trail begins again going west in an EBMUD right of way. There are steep rises and down slopes in this area, no natural or other landscaping, and behind houses. It is in this 9 mile stretch that there has been a couple muggings and a police officer killed in the last couple decades. At the west end of that stretch you navigate on residential streets with little signage telling where the trail is. Plan on taking some time to find your way through the first time. Then the trail begins the steep passage next to Highway 4 over Willow Pass. The trail here is good, though steep, and separated from the highway by a concrete block wall. Once over the top it is a steep descent into Concord. But be careful because at the bottom of the descent is a cross road with traffic. You can't take advantage of the speed coasting down the hill, easily 20+ mph, to coast a way because of the traffic possibilities. This is the west end of the Delta DeAnza trail. I've only ridden it on my trike once - on the way to a doctor's appointment at Kaiser Martinez. I recommend the Delta DeAnza trail from the Marsh Creek Trail westerly to Somersville Road. OK with care and keeping aware of your surroundings from Somersville to Bailey Road. And as a fitness exercise (or if necessary) from Bailey Road over Willow Pass.
