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.

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.

Leisurely trails that traverse historical grounds. Went with my boys who were interested in reading the various plaques that provided interesting information about the area. It is a popular destination with lots of families with small children. If your looking for more scenery or distance then add the trails that envelope the golf course.

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.
