The 5 Worth Considering E-bike Trails in Sacramento

With Sacramento becoming ever more ebike-friendly by the day, there are lots of ways to enjoy pedalling through California’s capital city.

The temperatures are fairly moderate, there are a number of fat tire ebike paths and designated ebike lanes, has further increased the popularity of bike-riding in a city already spinning with enthusiasm for it. This list is not inclusive as there are many awesome ebike routes in Sacramento, but here are some of the best ebike routes you can enjoy in it!

1. American River Parkway
It's been called the crown jewel of the Sacramento region, and its many sparkling gems reveal themselves anew with every ride. Part of a 4,800-acre ecosystem, the 23-mile American River Parkway is a multiuse wonder that runs through three cities and a state university campus but never feels urban. The paved path from Discovery Park to Nimbus Fish Hatchery lures riders as diverse as road racers in training, couples on tandems, downtown work commuters, older adults on recumbents, ebikers and families with young children just learning on two wheels.

Although American River Parkway is 12 feet wide with gravel shoulders on each side, the parkway can get congested, straining efforts to maintain parkway etiquette, especially on weekends when there may be events or families out with kids, dogs or strollers. Stay aware of your surroundings; better yet, pull over safely to the gravel shoulder or sit on one of the many dedicated benches and take it all in.

Stop atop the Guy West Bridge at Sacramento State, designed to resemble the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The view lets you inhale the breadth of the river; you may see wading fishermen and kayakers and soaring birds of prey. Later, if you’re in the mood for coffee and a pastry, pull off the trail in Carmichael at Bella Bru or, farther up, ride over the Old Fair Oaks Bridge into Fair Oaks Village and sample the French fare at O Cafe.

2. Two Rivers Trail
Running adjacent to the American River, The Two Rivers Trail connects Jibboom Street to State Route 160 in northern downtown Sacramento.
Providing a connection to the longer Sacramento River Parkway Trail at its western end, the 2.5-mile trail offers scenic views of the American River at every turn.
There is currently a project underway to extend the trail farther east along the southern bank of the American River, eventually connecting it to California State University in Sacramento. The project also aspires to create easier access to the trail for to those who’d like to enjoy it.

3. Seasonal Wetland Loop
This route will take you around Lake Natoma in Folsom, CA. You can use the paved bike path or venture off on the singletrack trails. Water and bathrooms are located at several points, but it's best to bring your own water. (Sometimes the water has been shut off when they are making repairs.)
The bike trail gets a lot of cyclist on the weekends, and at that time a 52v most powerful all terrain ebike will let you get the highlights. so you might want to take the singletrack trails. Watch out for poison oak and ticks if you venture off the bike trail.
Free parking is available at both ends of the trail, but there is much more parking at the garage in Folsom. When the salmon are running, the free parking lot at the half way point is usually full.

You can start at several locations. This map starts at the parking garage in Folsom. You can start in either direction but there is a section on the northwest side of the bike trail about 2 miles in where you are at the bottom of the bluffs and there is no shade. bluffs will expend your energy, but moutain ebike especially magicycle will help with uphill riding.

4. Johnny Cash Trail
If you’re riding the American River Bike Trail from Sacramento to Folsom, you’ll want to connect with the Johnny Cash Trail.
Running from Greenback Lane at the Folsom Powerhouse State Historic Park to the American River Bike Trail at Folsom Lake Crossing, the 2.5 mile Johnny Cash Trail was created to celebrate the Man in Black’s historic 1968 performance at Folsom Prison.
The two-lane trail meanders through grassy vistas of majestic oak trees, running directly alongside Folsom Prison grounds and past the iconic prison itself.
Coming soon! The City of Folsom is currently fundraising to complete the trail experience by installing 8 larger-than-life Cash-inspired statues along the trail, including a 40-foot tall statue of the Man in Black himself.

5. Lake Natoma Trail
Running from Gold Lake Drive east of Folsom Boulevard to the American River Bike Trail at Hazel Avenue & Gold Country Road, this 6-mile trail offers a beautiful ride along the southeast side Lake Natoma.
This picturesque trail is a lovely offshoot of the main American River Trail and features an abundance of both wildlife and scenic beauty.
