Laguna Creek Trail Description

The Laguna Creek Trail takes users from a trailhead and equestrian staging area on Waterman Road to parks, retail centers and residential neighborhoods both north and south of Camden Lake. The scenic trail provides a great opportunity for exercise, exploring nature or simple serenity.

Perennial marsh within the Laguna Creek corridor is characterized by tall, dense stands of vegetation such as tules, cattails, nutsedge and smartweed. Non-native annual grasses are the dominant vegetation in this habitat and include species such as wild oats, soft chess, ripgut brome, barley, wild mustard, wild radish and clover. The annual grasslands habitat also supports populations of small mammals such as meadow vole, pocket gopher and black-tailed jackrabbit, which attract predators such as red-tailed hawk, white-tailed kite, Swainson's hawk, coyote and gopher snake.

The trail, popular with locals and visitors alike, will be expanded and connected with other local trails as development occurs. The long-term vision for the parkway is to connect to the Elk Grove Creek Trail farther north, which will ultimately feed into the Sacramento River Parkway Trail that heads north into downtown Sacramento.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Laguna Creek Trail is available at a trailhead on Waterman Road and at Jack E. Hill Park (9380 Porto Roso Drive) in Elk Grove.

Laguna Creek Trail Reviews

Nice flat ride with lots of wildlife despite it being through town.

There's everything in this trail! We saw rabbits, squirrels, and wildlife. Also, it goes alongside shopping centers and places to eat! Gets a little bit bumpy toward the middle, but this trail is totally worth it!

Our daily biking trail, you can walk, run and bike! We discovered this trail recently and have been using it for our daily biking activity. My daughter is 6 years old and she loves this trail. After finishing the trail, we usually stop at the Hill park and she can rest and play . We love it !
