Great trail! There are plenty of people to meet and greet, but it is not crowded. Went to the north at first and hit the private property gate so I had to turn around and go the other way after that. Beautiful view!

Easy paved trail for most of the way, great for dogs on leash, lots of beautiful birds, river views, can go as long as 5 miles round trip from water tower to private property gated issue in little pocket that will hopefully be resolved soon and eventually connect this awesome trail to downtown for those of us who wish to go further by foot or bike. Bring doggie bags as my only compliant is there are none offered along the path and very few dumpsters until you get to Garcia Bend. Also, it dead ends (on the south end) into the water treatment tower but don’t expect there to be any water for you or your pet to consume. Wouldn’t these simple gestures for us locals who pay into these city parks be nice? Also, the Garcia Bend bathroom has been under construction for well over a year. These bizarre idiosyncrasies are why I give it 4 and not 5 stars as nothing beats the great view and awesome people along the way.

We ride this trail frequently and I love it. You can actually take it all the way downtown if you go around Scott’s and then get back on the trail. It’s about 7 miles from Greenhaven, but all flat so very doable.

Pretty good trail for walking/ running/ skating... not so bad for biking either. Paved from park in Freeport to Garcia bend park. Private property (north of Garcia be d park) fences prevent a through ride to Miller Park. I went in the evening, so plenty of shade!!

Nice weather for a change. Sunny, breezy, fresh...the sun finally throwing some punch.

Nice little trail but people needs to pick up after their dogs and stop throwing their doggy bags onto the side.

Enjoyed walking the river. I extended my track a little to 5 miles and it could be more. Brook, my lab, enjoyed the part that drops down to a dirt road along the river with access to the water. She took a morning swim....several times. Saw maybe 20 people along the way.

Right by a nice park. The trail is a little dull for walking, but is probably a really nice bike ride.

Pleasant walk - lots of birds and sunshine. Beautiful views of the Sacramento River as well as luxurious homes that follow the trail. Wonderful artwork at the end if the trail at the water intake building. Nice walk - would be nice and easy bike ride. We saw a man using a walker managing the paved trail. Totally accessible for all.

Good paved path, clean and kept up, with some dirty off shoots down to the river. Not much shade. the path is on top of the levee so you have neighborhood on one side and nature/ the river on the other.
