Walk, Jog and Bike
Apr 2020
The bike trail has always been a great place to enjoy. And, now that gyms and many parks are closed it is even better. We bike or walk portions of the trail between Sunrise Blvd and Folsom Dam. There are enough people to feel safe and yet maintain social distancing. Now there is an added bonus. The California poppies and other wildflowers are in bloom.

Wildlife, Beautiful Scenery

We rode 12 miles round trip from River Bend Park to Sunrise Rec Area. It’s a smooth trail through fields and trees with lovely views of the river. We saw deer, turkeys, rabbits, raptors, ducks, egrets, and herons. Many bathrooms, drinking fountains, picnic spots, and places to access the river. Fabulous!

Take a picnic, take pictures, take a minute to relax. Be EXTREMELY careful during the warmer days! The water moves faster under water!! ( than it looks from the top) appears. Enjoy!

Scenic trail spoiled
Dec 2019 • Friends
Once a quiet getaway is now a dump filled with filth and sadly, potentially dangerous people. Sorry, but the homeless camps along the way have disturbed a once lovely local escape from the bustle of the city.

Walk on "Upper Sunrise" part of American River Parkway"
Jan 2020 • Friends
January is when steelhead trout are spawning plus the end of the chinook salmon spawning season. Great views of this plus lots of other wildlife like deer, coyotes, woodpeckers, gulls, etc. The Nimbus Fish Hatchery is nearby also.

Good walking area near Old Town
Nov 2019 • Couples
We only walked short distance next to river and old town shops and museum. Good for walking and biking. Not sure about safety at night. Trail seems well maintained and had easy access.

Scary unsafe area with high crime!
Jul 2019
Beautiful nature area that once was safe for all. High crime area now with muslitple homeless camps, nudity, drug obuse, and sex offenders roamming the woods and along the river. Used drug syringes, piles of trash, dogs not leashed, human excrement/smells abound. Homless shouting obcentities at you or following you along the trail if you come upon them. thye are also using water craft if they have a camp along the river. Visit at you own risk!

Absolutely wonderful bike trail!
Oct 2019
The American River Trail stretches 26 miles from the Sacramento/American Rivers junction to Folsom Lake. Fully paved the entire way so not for committed off-roaders. Wide and well maintained. Mostly flat. Heavily used but traffic seldom a problem. Numerous access points and parking areas.

Great walking and biking
Oct 2019 • Friends
I am lucky enough to to live within walking distance from the river. The dirt trails that are separate from the biking trails all along the route right by the water. Well used and feels safe. Great place to spend quiet time by the water or walk/bike with friends. Fishing and water sports also. Great for exercise or family adventures.

Favorite Weekend Strolls and Bike rides
Oct 2019
So fortunate to live within biking distance of multiple access points. This bicycle trail is one of the very reasons it is wonderful to live in Sacramento.
