Trail Maintenance

Multi-use Dirt Trail
Since 2009 the American River Parkway Foundation has taken the lead in maintaining the multi-use trail or as most people refer to it as the “equestrian/hiking trail.” Initial funding for this important program was made possible through a contribution from the Sacramento Running Association (SRA). The dirt trail runs the length of the 23-mile American River Parkway from Discovery Park up to the Nimbus Fish Hatchery, providing visitors access to a different level of natural beauty.

The trail is used by equestrians and hikers, as well as a range of runners, from casual joggers to Olympic and professional athletes. Walkers and runners must yield to equestrians and dogs must be kept on a leash no longer than 6 feet.

Annual maintenance involves mowing grass and noxious weeds, clearing back encroaching brush, replacing vandalized signs, and removing downed trees, which happens throughout the year along this hidden gem.
