Arboretum Perimeter Trail Professional Review and Guide
"It’s just a wisp of a trail, based on north state standards, but the McConnell Arboretum Perimeter Trail packs a wallop for dog walkers, mountain bikers, and fitness striders. It’s been a few years in the making—and as of July 4, 2004 it’s connected to the nearly 12-mile Sacramento River Trail—but the nearly 2-mile trail is a fantastic place to take a leisurely stroll. Construction near the Sundial Bridge that links Turtle Bay Exploration Park with the McConnell Arboretum blocks the opening of the perimeter trail from the rest of the river trail (the $24-million bridge, designed by famed architect Santiago Calatrava, opened to the public in the summer of 2004)."
