Over the River & Through the Woods: Rancho Cordova

This hike is a fast but pretty 6.5 – 7 miles. Bring water and wear layers. Flashlights, too! If there's a chance of rain, come prepared (I'll cancel if it's pouring.) Good boots or trail shoes recommended. Also, there are star-thistles and brambles out there.

We leave at 6:10 sharp. If you're running late, okay to call:[masked] Susan

Dogs okay on leash.

There are restrooms open before dark at two points along our way, as well as drinking fountains.

It's a beautiful hike, mostly trails and dirt paths, but partially on the paved bike path. It's fairly fast-paced, starting from Hagan Park, along the river through River Bend Park, across the bridge to William Pond Park and beyond before turning around and coming back a slightly different route. 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 on Chase Drive, just past the high school, but just BEFORE entering the park gate, on the right.

    knees still bothering me. Better do the shorter Miner's Ravine tonight. But I really will be looking forward to the next Over the River hike.

    Sorry; can't believe I didn't mention that it's somewhere between 6.5--7 miles.
