I'm sure it's pretty when we are not in a drought but it was too dry for me - there are green markers but no information on them any longer and that was sad - the trail is not super interesting except the vine tree at the beginning

Not a whole lot of shade on most trails and the river isn't as full due to the drought but the nature center has wildlife and a good sized room for kids to learn and play in as well as a nice picnic area.

Great for the kids. Lots of educational signs to read. Deer close to the paths. Make sure you go into the nature center and see the reptiles and birds.

Great place to take the family for an easy hike and an opportunity to see deer,etc and have the kids learn something about the area at the Nature Center.

Great photo opportunities and an excellent family location for easy hiking and river views. Lots of wildlife and plants. Museum and docents have live animals to show. Highly recommended.

Best place to hike I have been in the Sacramento area. Peaceful and full of wildlife. Had a great time with the family. Most trails are animal friendly as well. $10 parking charge but well worth it.
