I love this trail and walk it frequently, at least a section of it. The Sundial bridge and the ribbon bridge are my favorite parts. It's also fun to see everyone out and about!

great place for walking, beautiful setting on the river. Great place to take the family. I recommend having bug spray on hand.

Very beautiful walk along the river. It is completely paved and flat for most of the walk/bike ride. Its just a nice relaxing time the whole way.

Beautiful Trail, did about 7 miles this morning, went from the Sundial Bridge to just past the aquatic center then came back and did one more short loop. This ride is along the Sacramento River. People are friendly, it's a paved trail and it's really easy riding. I'm just starting to get back out there, today's 7 mile ride was pretty easy.

I run, walk and ride on this trail all the time. It has multiple trailheads, my favorite at the Sundial Bridge. Depending on the part of the trail you're on, the difficulty level can be easy to challenging (cardiac hill). You can do loops and out/backs or point to points of short or extended distances. It's primarily paved and always scenic and gorgeous, year round! My absolute favorite place to run!
