This is the trail the Elk Grove Community utilizes on a daily basis. Find areas with kids, bicycles, parks, lakes, bridges, railroads, and everything else related to community activities. Near the railroads, find cranes and awesome wildlife in the area. Near the Lakes, find birds and ducks all over. Lots of photography opportunities. Additionally, find people fishing for trouts at the lakes. Great for everyone. The majority of the area is really accessible for all people.Show more
