The American River Bicycle Trail is really not just a bicycle trail but an entire park system that runs for a continuous 25 or so miles. There is a paved bicycle trail, but also grassy fields, numerous picnic spots, single-track trails for running, hiking and equestrian use... and best of all, the most serene and picturesque vistas in Sacramento. I truly believe this is the crown jewel ! Rent bikes at Trek Bike Midtown, or grab some Jump bikes.
