on San Juan Rapids Trail

1 day ago

This is our weekly trail for the last year and half or so.... it’s easy, local and gets you out. Signage is pretty bad but the app keeps you on track. Picnic tables and bathrooms available at Sacramento Bar Park.

First trail ride since being in California. Took my 9 year old and she had a blast. Concrete trail is almost entirely flat and great for families. Dirt trails are mellow and pretty narrow at times with high grass. Overall good simple and short ride. Will be back.

This is a beautiful hike. Follow the app and preloaded map, and you'll be fine. I had to stick to the wider path a couple times because the original line of this track is overgrown or covered by water. This is going to be a regular spot for sure. Veer a little off path towards the sounds of Rapids when you reach the back of the high school against the river for a great view. Fantastic.

Wonderful walk and physically very easy to do. What was hard is finding the right paths and trails - the signage lacks! However, using this app which I just downloaded this morning-made it workable

The GPS navigation kept me going down the right pathways. Totally would have been lost with consulting it from time to time.

Lots of colors from wildflowers along the trail. The American River was high from recent rains and was running very swiftly down towards Sacramento.

All in all a nice walk in nature - would do this trail again. I would have not have discovered this trail system with this app.

Loved this trail! So beautiful! Loved feeling out in nature. Easy to get to, lots off side trails, water - so pretty! This moved to our #1 trail for this area. Looking forward to next weekend to go again.

You need to pay 12$ per parking. Regular trail. Nothing special.

This was an awesome trail, first one I've tried using this app and Im so glad! There was so much to see I probably took 100 pictures that all look the same but I couldn't help it! Walking by the water was not even much more difficult than the paved path, but both offered really great views. Loved the river, different trees and plants and of course all of the wild flowers! I would definitely recommend this trail to anyone of any level of hiking experience, but there were plenty of dogs off leash so be careful bringing your dog if that would be a problem.

Not a bad hike on a nice day. Parking was an unexpected con.. ended up finding it accidentally in the shopping center next to the "Cosmos" sculpture. Noise from 80 was a little distracting but my kids loved running around. The paved trail was an easy walk.

I love this place. One of my favorites. There are two trails: one that's paved and one that's natural that goes through the woods by the creek. I love that I can choose either one - depending on how I feel. You can see wild turkeys and critters here and there. It's also fairly populated, but I love it.

This is a nice trail, but I really don't see how it's rated 'moderate'. It's flat and the entire length is paved. It's completely stroller and wheelchair friendly. Sure, there are side dirt trails that go down to the creek and so on... and those are going to be a bit more difficult... but the main trail is very easy.

Good amount of tree cover for sunny days too.

So pretty lots of bikers and horses but still good trail to hike

Was a perfect trail to see how my pup would behave on a trail, and a great reintroduction for me after being out for a few hiking seasons. It is well populated on a nice day, so if you are looking for solitude this one might not be for you, but I found it to be just right for a Sunday morning jaunt.

Nice trail!!

Far more expensive than it should be. Trail is decent and a work out if you make it one but otherwise, not my first choice.

Good trail for a family stroll. There's even a playground by the parking lot for the kids and tennis too.

If you're planning on hiking the path listed I strongly suggest using the app or a map. Even using the app we got a bit confused. Very rocky, so wear comfortable shoes. Some nice wildlife by the river. We saw plenty of birds and some sunbathing turtles. Not too many people on the trail when we went. Lots of dogs.

Love this trail. Beautiful and not very busy usually (except for holidays in the summer).

A nice beginners trail for mountain biking. A short out-and-back that’s mostly flat. Recommended for novices like me.

Great trail for a variety of abilities. Creek and tree cover help keep trail cool. Pretty/colorful in Fall.

Have walked this trail a few time. Great walk.

Easy hike in the burbs. Great for a quick afternoon getaway.

Lots of friendly people and dogs to sniff. My only complaint is too many humans don’t clean up dog poop so I stop frequently to sniff all the poop. The bike trail is easy while the dirt paths have a lot of options that are more moderate.

If you wanna pay 12 bucks for parking because its a fancy area by El Dorado hills then this is great for you. If not go somewhere else.
