American River Bike Path


Sacramento is a bike rider’s paradise with multiple connecting bike trails, but the American River trail is 32 miles stretching from downtown Sacramento to Folsom. Also known as the Jedidiah Smith National Recreation Trail, the trail is entirely for bikes and does not encounter vehicle traffic, making it safe for families to enjoy.

The paved trail passes through Paradise Beach, Riverbend Park, Discovery Park, and more. The trails also allow for inline skating, walking and running and has many shaded areas for rest.
