Nice trail for riding your bikes, walking, running along the river. The trail is shaded along most of the trail with views of the river. You can go for miles.

This is a well kept trail for walking, bicycling or dog walking next to the Sacramento river. You cross over the Sundial Bridge, next to Turtle Bay, to get to the trail, free parking.
