Over the River & Through the Woods: Rancho Cordova: ~7miles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

    Thanks, Susan (and the others who did show); got above-average exercise (and weight loss), and learned the route. Will join you again when you least expect it!

    Someone was asking me about bug control. I use permethrin. And I decided this was a good subject for an event. http://www.meetup.com/Sacramento-Valley-Outdoor-Education/events/119386242/

    Hi to all, I would like to meet you all, however I think that I may need to get back sooner. Is anyone interested in doing about 2 miles up and 2 miles back?
