Not sure which part of this trail was my favorite.

The fetid pools of filthy water stagnating in the creek bed were able to attract some blue jays and even what looked like a heron, or was it heroin? Watch out for easter egg needles in the brush!

The weird dude on the 99 overpass cartwheeling into a pushup position and shouting "you want some?" while doing very unmilitary pushups was amusing, but not sure he would have kept his distance from someone not 6'2" and male. Just sayin'

Was it a Boone's farm fueled love fest I interrupted? Or were they just in there picking up trash and broken glass? Ye gods, there was a lot of that.

6 level road crossings with inoperable crossing signals. Nowhere to park. Shall I continue?

If I could give a half star, or even a quarter, I would think I had been too kind. This trail is gross, and probably dangerous.

Trail is not very well maintained. The elk grove creek entrance has a fallen tree blocking the path.

This trail may be nice starting at some other point but was disgusting where it tells you to start. There was trash all over the place and dead fish floating in the water. I passed a few sketchy people coming out of the path and a fallen tree blocked the path a short ways in. It was really bad.

My wife and I had a very pleasant walk along the creek starting from Elk Grove/Florin Rd. The creek had plenty of water but was still and reflective. Path is gravel,
very clean and private. We will try it again as the seasons change.

Some of the path is dirt, mostly along Elk Grove Creek, but the rest is paved with bike lanes, etc. This trail meanders along both Elk Grove Creek and Laguna Creek through the middle of suburbs and across a major freeway by way of civilian overpass. "Creek" is a strong word, as the water isn't flowing.
