Fyi: to get in the main entrance it costs $5. You can park in the residential area outside the gates and get in for free. :-) Peaceful and native Sacramento.

Nice place to go right in town to get away from it all. Lots of places you can find to be alone and have some quiet time as well as see some nature and wildlife. No dogs are allowed in this area but on others around you can.

Great hike for children and special needs children or adults. Easy walk. No dogs allowed on trails. Small fee to park think it was 3.00 but no more than 5.00. Nature Center is free and very educational.

completed the 2 small nature trails. here. The sounds of birds, was relaxing. I can see this place getting extremely busy in the summer months due to the river access and activities for kids. As I walked, I enjoyed rabbits hopping the trail right in front of me. wild turkeys showing off their plumage. Deer are present throughout.

I've never done much hiking in my 40 years of life but this little nature walk is truly relaxing. Go alone or take your family for lunch in the picnic area. It's awesome and it's so close to home.

Got to see lots of wildlife along the river but there wasn't anything else that was very exciting for the most part. The best part was actually the visitors center where they had a bunch of animals found in the area and an educational center. Don't miss is.

great place to get away from it while being right next to it. I can't believe this right here in Carmichael and I'd not been here before. The trails are easy and marked with info along some of them. Loads of deer and turkey throughout. Great get-away without having to drive far.
