Fodor's Review

The Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail, as it's formally called, runs for 32 miles from Old Sacramento to Beals Point in Folsom. Walk or ride a bit of it and you'll see why local cyclists and pedestrians adore its scenic lanes, if not always each other: confrontations do occur between humorless speeders and meandering gawkers. Enjoy great views of the American River and the bluffs overlooking it. Bring lunch or a snack. Pretty parks and picnic areas dot the trail.
