Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail Loop: American River Parkway Professional Review and Guide
"The Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail is a popular 31mile paved bicycle and pedestrian route that begins at Beals Point in the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area and follows the American River Parkway eastward to Discovery Park, at the confluence of the American and Sacramento rivers. For those who prefer a more intimate introduction to the trail and the parkway, this is one of several sections of the trail suitable for exploring on foot. This section of the Parkway has reciprocal trails on the north and south sides of the river, which allows for a 4.2 mile loop along the river and through its wildlife-rich riparian forest."
