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

Calaveras River Bike Path

Only decent place to ride in Stockton

February, 2020 by ki6uaq

All the other trails are either 50+ year old asphalt that is literally full of potholes and eroded surface, or shared with 50+ mph traffic. This is the only remotely safe place to ride in Stockton until their new bike master plan is complete. That's not slated to be finished until 2035, so this is where you will be biking in Stockton for the next 15 years!

Lake Natoma Trail

Scenic trail with smooth surface

February, 2020 by p_massam

Hit this trail on a Saturday and started out from the car park at the dam. Our family of four cycled along the trail for just under 4 miles. Great lake views, smooth trail, and polite trail users. Good number of stopping places with lake views. Highly recommend.

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.

Dry Creek Parkway

Funtime with the family!

January, 2020 by bralio

I would recommended it! Family friendly and parks along the way. Bring the dog the loved ones and enjoy the day!

Two Rivers Trail

Not much for recreation

September, 2019 by tommyonbike

Trail surface is good, but most of trail is amid homeless encampments with accompanying refuse. Most folk were friendly, but definitely not a scenic route.As previous reviewer stated, east end is very busy road with no bike lane or shoulder. Not for the faint of heart!

Elk Grove Creek Trail

super cool!

August, 2019 by amberpm2002

Definitely a cool trail. Goes over the freeway with its own bridge, shady, good path across town!

El Dorado Trail

El Dorado Trail & Placerville Trail

July, 2019 by chris180

When you experience this trail you first need to realize it is actually about 37 miles long but is longer than that to Folsom or to Tahoe (Epic Trail System). That said, the El Dorado Trail is a "trifecta of trails" with rail, earthen trail and Class I bike path under construction. This is the goal of the entire corridor to the El Dorado County line BECAUSE it is the goal of the organization that manages it, the SPTC JPA.

The El Dorado Trail or Gem of the Western Sierras, is a rough, somewhat untamed trail testament to the folks who built it and many with legacy family members in the area. In fact, many with less than 75 years in the are do not know about the EDT. Come out and ride the rail now in Shingle Springs in the depot at Sam's Town Cyclery or rent bikes to ride the earthen trail. You can also ride the rail in El Dorado and soon they will have a Class I (ADA approved) bike path along with improved earthen trail.

The Placerville Trail (Missouri Flat to Camino) is great with some nice views and the tressle bridge over Weber Creek. However, watch out for cars and homeless in Placerville. Making way out of Placerville you can get to Camino with a little bit of a climb (estimate 600').

In the next few years projects will start to build the Class I trail next to the rail and hopefully we will see connects to Cameron Park, El Dorado Hills and Folsom.

Oh yeah, wildlife are plenty on the EDT having seen over the years many deer, fox, skunk and even a mountain lion!

El Dorado Trail

Work in Progress and Gorgeous

June, 2019 by iomgdiot

Started 7:00am on trail and it was a challenge through some of the obstacles... freeway construction zone, Saturday Farmers Market, Gold Rush festival but that was the easy stuff. Problematic areas began after Missouri Flat Road / Walmart. Here the trail was either rocky, on an edge next to tracks or on the tracks. At least the worst was riding on tracks which is ok if you have good dual suspension and are dialed in. Views were awesome, no loose dogs, trails were challenging at times. We eventually abandoned the rails due to low air and low water I’d do it again but start in Camino and end in Walmart.

El Dorado Trail

IQ Test Hieroglyphics for Pedestrians & Bicyclists.

May, 2019 by paradisesean

The main problem with the trail are the folks that cannot figure out the little stick figures (and text) painted on the pavement surface at most major crossings.

The pedestrian figure and the bicyclist figure are obviously travelling in the same direction of travel---pedestrian limbs and leaning into the walk, bicycle sitting on the bicycle facing forward. Pedestrian is on the left side of the trail as you read the right-side up text, "Left", and the bicyclist is on the right side of the trail as you read the "Right" text.

All the clues are there, but so many people don't seem to figure it out, so it is a bit annoying to have to go around them as they walk towards you on the trail.

I hope this helps.

Bear Creek Trail (CA)

Tranquil 8 mile ride

May, 2019 by cynwoodty

I’m making this my favorite local bike path. It’s quiet, clean for the most part, and it’s long enough to get a good ride in.

Sutter Commuter Bikeway

Short ride, nice experience....

December, 2018 by h3liflyer

I am new to the Yuba City area and found this trail. It was not far and even though it was a Sunday it was pretty quiet. It is a good short trail with a great view.
