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.

    Somewhat wetter than usual, but a great way to cool the feet.

    It will be hot; please bring plenty of water. We'll go through the woods first, hoping for shade, and come back along the river.

    If anyone is going from West Sac, may I ride with you? Here visiting, so no car.
