No sign to get to the trail. Note it is not on the boat dock side. you need to follow the dirt road as people said in the comments and walk to it.

This is really not worth driving over to hike the trail. there is nothing really to see. very very boring trail. Water is dirty. I dont' think I will kayak in that water.

Also note the cell phone reception is not good around the area. in case you need to use the phone here. my group has tmobile, at&t, and sprint, none has decent reception around the area.

Great place to put in your kayak or go fishing, not that cool or exciting of a hike.
Easiest way to get there is to park in Locke public parking area and walk down the gravel road, you will pass by community garden and trail leads from there to the river

Shaded. I'll come back to put kayak in. Too many star thistles for the dog. Do not follow Google Maps. Off River road right before entering Walnut Grove from the south, pull into road next to Chuck Tyson Memorial Park. Unmarked road ends at parking area. You will see trail head.

Decent hike. Trail is hard to find & not mapped well though. Lots of thorny things but very shaded & has nice lake view. Neighborhood garden & fruit trees are super cute & the ppl very friendly.

The town of Locke is worth the trip! Several free museums are open to the public. The walk on the levee wasn't that interesting, but it was nice to experience the solitude- not one other person out. To find the trail, take the dirt road adjacent to the parking lot, then travel past the community garden...

The trail runs along the top of a levy just behind the historic town of Locke. When you turn into town go past the museum and there is a paved parking lot. Park there and go left out of the parking lot down the street. There isn't a trail head. You'll walk along the community garden then around the back of the garden to pickup the path up the levy. The trail is a flat tree covered path with the Delta water on one side. It is a very pleasant walk. There are no services along the trail.

I recommend taking the time to visit the Locke museum and walk through the town.
