Scenic Lake Natoma is the focus of this paved loop trail, and it offers a number of options for exploration by foot, bike, or even kayak. The end points of the loop have easy access to light rail public transportation, which means you can leave your car at home. It also means that you can do half the loop and make your way back to your starting point via light rail. Wildlife abounds in the marshes and oak woodlands along the loop, which also provides glimpses of Gold Rush history.
