Sacramento Northern Bike Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Sacramento Northern Railroad slices through a cross-section of Central California, leading from the old neighborhoods of Sacramento through the suburbs to the north of town, then out into scenic farmland. You can picnic in Discovery Park or in one of the gazebos along the route, as well as at Rio Linda. Trail surface: Asphalt."
--Tracy Salcedo-Chourre, Best Rail Trails California (Falcon Guides).
"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."
