There are about 35 miles of paved trail with only 2 or 3 level road crossings. It goes along the American river. One frequently sees deer, turkeys, coyotes, jack rabbits and even snakes. There are also lots of birds and, in season, salmon swim up stream. Most runner and walkers are good and stay to the correct side. It is hard to believe there is this much tranquility and nature right through the city.

We are so lucky to live next to such a wonderful view of nature. This trail goes on forever and it connects to so many other trails in the area. It's just so calming and relaxing and makes you forget you live in a city. I take advantage of being able to connect with nature and I walk, jog, run or bike the trails every single day, twice a day. If you haven't been out there, you have to experience it. Trust me you'll be back over and over again!

For natural setting in an urban it's hard to rival the ARP in Sacramento. Both developed and undeveloped areas have something for everyone; great fishing, hiking, biking, picnicking, wildlife viewing. If you're a nature lover this is the place to spend time when in Sacramento.

This trail is amazing, whether you are a walker or biker. My husband and I ride the trail at least once a month. There are lots of places to get on and off. The trail is well-maintained. One of our favorite outings is to start in Old Town Folsom, ride to Old Town Sac for Lunch, and then take the Light Rail back to Folsom.

Very, very nice trail.. With clear signs noting that walkers go on the dirt paths, bikers down the middle on the asphalt.. And TONS of people waddle themselves out into the middle of the path, strolling along talking or whatever, right in the paths of the cyclists.. And then they cuss at the cyclists who ride by!!

Meanwhile, the cyclists are the nicest people, honestly! I've seen more strangers stop their bikes to help others...
