This is an excellent close to 5 mile loop trail. I usually park in La Riviera on the South Side of the American River near the Howe Avenue Bridge. It's easy to access the river trail. Run west towards the Guy West Bridge then crossover and follow the trail to the Watt Ave Bridge then cross back over. If you stick to the main trail there are dirt trails next to the main bike trail. There are a lot of Side trails you can hop on if you're feeling more adventurous. No traffic so need to stop and go, perfect for runners.

Super easy paved trail. There is more shade than I thought there would be.

So the trail head is well hidden. No signs. The trail head is on the corner of La Riviera drive and Howe Ave. Flat trail. Well trafficked. Many bikers. I had my dog off leash, but others had theirs on leash. I liked the option to follow the trail on a levee section that isn't as shaded. I LOVED that u can take detours from the trail toward the river. It's not even far off the trail. The dogs loved that.

The kids have fun. Easy walk along the paved road or exploring the unpaved river trails.

most of the view is blocked by unkempt grass, I enjoyed the paseo styled trail. this area is more for running and exercise and less for views and hiking. my dog, however went crazy for the unkempt grass. will return in running gear and no dog.
