  • Wonderful Park with numerous hiking and swimming opportunities. The river here is sublime and many come to visit, but if you plan accordingly you can find your own slice of heaven along the shore for a picnic and swim.
  • Great park with many trails to explore. The bridge and historic building are nice to explore as well. Parking is difficult unless you want to pay to park.
  • Nice easy hikes for the family. Close to Sacramento with pretty views.
  • Great to see the flowing river. Good rocks & bridge view. Nice hiking.
  • Pick a landing and hike in to find a great spot to chill in the river. Pack a lunch and.enjoy the water and the nature. Easy day trip from Oakland.
