It’s October and it’s time to commemorate our ancestors. So why not take a hike to the Old Sacramento City Cemetery to see the burial sites of many of Sacramento’s founders. This urban hike takes you to the Old City Cemetery then around Capitol Park and back.

Route Description:

Starting at Vallejo’s in downtown Sacramento at 4th and S Streets we will hike through the Southside Park neighborhood to the Old City Cemetery at 10th and Broadway.

Once at the cemetery we will walk respectfully (Click here for cemetery etiquette) through the “streets” of the cemetery looking at various grave sites and visiting the burial sites of John Sutter Jr. [masked]), Edwin Bryant Crocker [masked]), Mark Hopkins [masked]) and others. (Click here for a self-guided tour map).

Exiting the cemetery we will travel down Riverside Blvd and 11th street to Capitol Park. At the park we will walk by various memorials including the Veterans Memorial, Firefighers Memorial and Vietnam Memorial. Leaving the park will then return to Vallejo’s.

Other Information:

There is plenty of free parking after 6:00 pm along S street between 3rd and 4th streets.

For those that have the time afterwards, we'll go for beer, margaritas, and/or dinner at Vallejo's Restaurant on the corner of 4th and S streets.

To get to the meetup location from I-5, take the Q street exit then right on 3rd street to S street. From Hwy 50 take I-5 north to the Q Street exit. The meetup location is 6 blocks from the 8th and O Street Light Rail Station.

    Is anybody passing thru or near Modesto and can let me tag along. I'm super short on funds but would love to come and get started with you guys as often as my schedule/funds permit. This looks like a fun one to get started on! Also, can I bring my dogs? Both pits: one is 2 but so so sweet and playful/happy and the other is 5 mos old so full of energy! Please get back at me, somebody! Get me outta this house! Thanks guys and gals... Looking forward to (hopefully) getting out. Gonna go ahead and RSVP and keep my fingers crossed!
