Over the River & Through the Woods: Rancho Cordova: 6+miles











Bring water and wear layers. Winter, fall and spring, we hike in the dark, so bring flashlights, too! If there's a chance of rain, come prepared (I'll cancel if it's pouring.) Good boots or trail shoes recommended.

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 fast walkers. No complaining; you have been forewarned. (We pause after the first half-hour, so if you find yourself falling behind, just speak up and we'll talk about possibilities.)

Park at the Community Center lot on Chase Drive, just past the high school, but just BEFORE entering the park gate, on the right.

    My cousin and I had a great time! We are both exhausted as well as the dogs. I apologize that we had to stop for the dogs so many times and it held us back. But I hope to have the opportunity to hike with you all again! In the warmer months, I think I'll leave the doggies at home though... :)
    Thank you everyone!

    Jennifer, please check the map on the event page and read the hike description. We will leave at 6:10 from the community center parking lot that is on the right--- just before the park entrance but past the high school.

    I would like to bring a dog with me. On leash, of course.
