Elk Grove Creek Trail Description

The Elk Grove Creek Trail is open in two disconnected segments along its namesake waterway in the cities of Elk Grove and Sacramento. Both portions offer a smooth paved surface and scenic views of the adjacent creek.

The southern segment courses through Elk Grove from Emerald Vista Drive to Lewis Stein Road and features a new, long trail bridge over busy State Route 99. Between Laguna Boulevard and Oneto Park, the trail runs on both sides of the creek, offering trail users a loop option.

The northern segment consists of several pieces that extend from Elk Grove into southern Sacramento, with the main route stretching from Bruceville Road to Franklin Boulevard. From Center Parkway, a spur leads east to Jacinto Creek Park, while North Laguna Creek Park is another popular destination along the main trail's alignment.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the the Elk Grove Creek Trail is available at Zimbelman Park (9191 Big Horn Boulevard) or on-street at Oneto Park (9477 Hidden Hollow Court) in Elk Grove.

Elk Grove Creek Trail Reviews

Trail not suited for advanced cyclists

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.

Very nice trail—not lengthy—but nice.

Nice trail for a no stress, pleasant ride, especially for family bike riding. DAB

super cool!

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