“Great Outdoors in the suburbs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Miners Ravine in Roseville is a wonderful multi-use trail that meanders through oak trees along a lovely creek. In the Spring time the wild flowers are beautiful. You can bike, run or walk, no motorized vehciles are allowed. Options for trail heads are available on the city website. A few words of caution, never leave anything valuable in your car. And walk on the left side of the trail, proper multi-use trail ettiquette. Once on the trail you will enter a lovely world of nature hidden away from the hustle of suburban life. I have always felt safe on the trail.

“An Urban Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

The City of Roseville has over 30 miles of paved dual use trails. A complete pdf map of bike and walking trails can be found on the City’s website. My favorite trail is Miner’s Ravine (Six to eight miles in length).

The ravine got its name from gold mining activities during the Gold Rush.

Bring your binoculars and camera. Some 200 species of birds and 50 species of mammals species live or migrate through the watershed. There is also the fall chinook salmon run.

Thousands of years old, be sure to stop view the Maidu Indian bedrock mortars.

“A little strip of tranquility hidden from the city that surrounds it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

In beginning, please note that the address listed here is right on the cusp of Roseville and Granite Bay. There are several access points to the Miners Ravine Trail Loop along the length of it in Roseville.

Like a park, an hour before and after the sun cycles you can access the trail and enjoy all the beauty it has to offer. I like to get out early to catch the sight of foraging wildlife in the early light, but throughout the day there are various creatures going about their business in the ravine.

If you can get there in spring and early summer it is exceedingly picturesque, but a pleasant experience relishing the beauty can be had here anytime of year.

Joggers, walkers, cyclists, and strollers of all ages and walks of life are to be found enjoying the beauty of Miners Ravine. It has a nicely paved trail with informational signage. There are also occasional benches ideal for taking a breather or soaking up the ambiance. You will come across other users enjoying the atmosphere, and they often mirror any cordial nature you might convey to them, but if you prefer to keep to yourself they often do the same.

Lace up your shoes or throw a leg over a bike, take some water to stay hydrated, and get out and enjoy Miners Ravine!
