“Love the Bike Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The American River Bike trail is a fantastic. Lot's of beautiful scenery as you ride, run, walk or skate by the American River. As a warning, you must be paying attention since there can be some fast riding, particulalry on busy weekend mornings.

“Ride the parkway all the time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

You see everyone on the parkway: walkers, joggers, people with families, people with dogs and strollers but my big attraction is riding my bike there. I'm in a women's cycling club and we use the trail all year round. Just as a reminder: cyclists ride on the right side and walkers and joggers are suppossed to run or walk FACING traffic. This seems strange and many people don't do it but walking instructions are stenciled on the pavement. There are quite a few cyclists and we ride about 15 mph (which is the speed limit) so please obey the traffic instructions.

“Unbelievable Vistas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I ride my bicycle along this trail twice a week, about 15 miles in each direction from Discovery Park. So many times I would like to just pull off the trail and hike down to one of the secluded beaches in late summer and early fall. Picture perfect.

“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.
