The Bannister Bike Trail and accompanying Jim Jones Bridge Trail make for a lovely short bike ride in the Sacramento suburbs. At its western endpoint, the trail connects to Bannister Park, a lovely park with access to open greenspace and playgrounds. Starting from this end of the trail, the trail winds along the trail and brush along reaching the Jim Jones Bridge Trail.
The pedestrian and cyclist bridge is a popular fishing spot and spans across the American River with scenic views of the surrounding river and banks. The trail is nice and wide here with room for both people fishing and cyclists and pedestrians. Kayakers and other people exploring the banks of the river can often be seen from the trail. The opposite endpoint of this trail connects to the American River Parkway, also known as the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail, a fantastic 32 mile trail.
Whether only sticking to this trail or continuing on to the American River Parkway, the Bannister Bike Trail and Jim Jones Bridge Trail is worth a trip!
There is parking for this trail at Bannister Park, 3820 Bannister Rd. and at the American Parkway Trail along S. Bridge Street. See TrailLink Map for more detailed information.
