Local Hike: Over the River & Through the Woods, Rancho Cordova

Wanted to do something local on the holiday. Come on out for a couple of hours!

Bring water and wear layers. If there's a chance of rain, come prepared. Also, there are star-thistles and brambles out there.

We leave at 10:10 with whoever shows up.

This is a very pretty, less urban hike, mostly on dirt, but partially on the paved bike path. It's a semi fast-paced hike from Hagan Park, along the river through River Oaks Park, across the bridge to William Pond park and around the pond, then coming back a slightly different route.

It's a beautiful hike, mostly trails and dirt paths. There are snakes and brambles, roots and rocks, bugs and fairly quick walkers. No complaining; you have been forewarned.

Park at the Community Center lot, after the high school, to the right just BEFORE entering the park gate.

    Sorry, busy weekend with lots of running around. I think I'll stay in elk grove and do a local walk with my dog. Thanks anyway!
