American River Trail

The American River Trail is one of the longest paved bike paths in the country at 32 miles.

ready to ride

The path connects downtown Sacramento to Folsom Lake. Pedestrians and horses are also allowed to use the trail but they are directed to use the dirt shoulders when possible.

perfect bike path!

The Amtrak train in Sacramento takes bikes in each car for no fee!

en route to Martinez

I only rode 22 of the 32 miles, but I'll be back with Heather when the weather is cooler.

my destination: Old Sacremento & Amtrak
