Via del Rio (Fair Oaks Village): 6.5 mile partial loop
Join Sacramento Pilgrim Hike Leader Robert Freitas on this 6.5 mile partial loop trail on Monday, December 2nd at 9am starting at Village Park in Fair Oaks.
Starting at a park inhabited by wild chickens and reaching a fish hatchery at midpoint, hikers will follow paved roads and a horse trail along the upper American River Parkway. Pilgrims will cross a 105 year old bridge, view 100 foot bluffs, see the results of decades of gold mining, and possibly spot deer, coyotes, vultures, sea lions, turkeys, and migrating salmon. Although the route is mostly flat, there is a short 1/2 mile, 150’ elevation change near the beginning and end of the walk.
Restrooms and water sources are available in multiple locations on the route.
The hike will be from 9am to noon, starting from the outdoor stage in Village Park (4238 Main St, Fair Oaks, CA).
Ample, free on-street parking available around the park.
