The American River trail is great. Lots of room for walking, jogging and biking. Runs alongside the river and it’s a scenic route.

A lovely flat ride and can be up to 50 miltes, crossing rivers and by Lake Natoma. We are lucky to live near the beginning of this trail and have ridden it many times.

Had our bikes with us on an overnight in Sacramento. Used part of the trail to travel to a couple of breweries and also checked out Discovery park area which is nice. Trail was level with good exit ramps and not too busy when we were there on a Friday evening.

I can’t find the area to ask questions, so I’ll ask here: why do the pedestrians walk on the left side of the path here and other areas in NorCal? They don’t do this in SoCal. Great path, just confusing!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
