There are not many place where you can bike, run or walk for 35 miles on a paved path along a river, but you can here. The pathway runs from Folsom Lake down to Discovery Park in Sacramento. There are various parks, such as Goethe and William Pond, along the Parkway. There are various waterfowl on and along the American River. At night time you can hear coyotes howl. This Parkway alone makes Sacramento special.

It is nice for a bicycle ride. I would not go alone though I always go along with my husband.
