“Lucky Sacramento”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

How lucky Sacramento is to have this great bike trail that passes through so many locales along the American River. Whether you are biking or walking you will love this bike path. Now to have the Little Pocket open up so we can connect the Sacramento River Trail to downtown.

“Local biking at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Thirty-five miles of pristine bike trail between Discovery Park and Folsom Lake. Although it is not, it seems like a wilderness trail. It's that secluded and protected from civilization. Not a safe place for strollers, tykes on wobbly bikes, or for walking dogs - who should all stick with the many parks along the trail.

“Best place to be outdoors in Sacramento”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

32 miles from Old Sacramento to Folsom Lake. Great place to get away for a bike ride or a walk. No worry about cars, just enjoy the view. Evenings can include great wildlife viewing-deer, turkey, ducks, and the occasional coyote.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

It is a stunning trail. The only part that I didn't like was that the maps do not have a "You are Here" so not being from the area it was difficult to discern how far I had gone. Overall it is a wonderful trail and easy to do.

“Great cyclist resource”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is mostly well-maintained with drinking fountains and restrooms well spaced out, beautiful scenery, including overlooks of the river with a fair number of picnic tables along the way. You feel that you are almost in the country, yet there are reasonably placed access points to get you right back to civilization when you're ready.
