Locke Levee Walk – 6 mile out-and-back
February 6, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Sacramento Pilgrim Robert Freitas on this 6 mile hike on Thursday, February 6th starting at 9am!
Join us for an easy, flat 6 mile stroll under heritage oak trees and along levee paths built to reclaim Delta farmland. The route includes a brief tour of the town of Locke.
Founded in 1915, the community of Locke once hosted over 600 residents and was the only city specifically built by, and for, Chinese immigrants. This route has no bathroom, drinking water, or food -except near the start – so plan accordingly.
At the conclusion of the hike, you have the option to gather for lunch at the sole surviving Chinese restaurant in the town and/or partake of liquid refreshments at a local bar that features a very unique ceiling.
DIRECTIONS: From Sacramento, take I-5 south, exiting at Twin Cities Rd. Turn right and head west on Twin Cities Road until you reach the river. Turn left onto River Road, drive past the small town of Locke, and then turn left onto Levee Road just BEFORE the bridge to Walnut Grove. Parking will be on your immediate left. The closest address for mapping directions would be “13971 River Road, Walnut Grove” but parking is actually behind that property.
**Note** We ask that you keep your four-legged friends at home for this group walk. Service dogs are welcome.**
This hike will go, rain or shine!
