This rail-trail, mostly flat and nicely paved, cuts north from downtown Sacramento into the suburbs of Rio Linda and Elverta. A short section is described here, illustrating the provocative dilemmas that urban trails strive to bridge. The route begins amid industry and runs through the strip of riparian parkland along the American River at the border of Discovery Park.
