The Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail offers the best trail access in the Sacramento area. This world-renowned trail winds from Folsom to old Sacramento, paralleling the American River and stopping at many key places along the way.
Activities along the Trail System include hiking, horseback riding, cycling, inline skating, jogging and strolling. The Trail is also a very popular, healthy, environmentally sound alternative for commuting to work. Visitors often combine their Trail activities with shopping or eating, while others enjoy fishing or picnicking beneath a shady tree. Equestrian access to the paved trail surface is allowed only at trail crossings and bridges.
