What Aaron wrote is entirly true, this is a terriable area of the river. You should try further up toward fair oaks or Carmichael. Try the red brdige in old fair oaks. As a local i went there a lot to enjoy the river. It has bike trails that lead all the downtown.

One of the best things Sacramento has to offer!! Great for biking, jogging, hiking, nature walks, picnics by the river. A lot of people do use, but it's such a long stretch of nature that if you really wanted some quiet time, you are sure to find some.
