Sacramento

Sacramento is where trips into the Central Valley, the Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta and the Sierra Nevada foothills begin. Sacramento's main attraction for DogTrekkers is the 32-mile American River Parkway, a shady greenbelt cradling a dog-friendly trail that stretches from the Old Sacramento historic district to the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. Throughout Sacramento are parks, picnic areas, river beaches and countless other places where you and your dog can stretch your legs.

The American and Sacramento rivers converge at Discovery Park, just north of downtown Sacramento, and whichever way you trek along the 32-mile, multi-use Jedidiah Smith Memorial Trail (also known as the American River Bike Trail), you’ll enjoy lots of scenery and wildlife.  If you’re a first-timer to Sac, we suggest starting out your hike in the Old Sacramento historic district just across Interstate 5 from downtown. more »

Chow Down in Sacramento

Several years ago, Sacramento branded itself “America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital.” And no wonder: virtually every independently-owned restaurant in town prides itself on fresh ingredients sourced from Central Valley farms within just a few miles of town. With 2014 passage of a statewide law giving formal permission for dogs to join their people at outdoor bar and restaurant tables, it’s hard to find an eatery that doesn’t welcome DogTrekkers. During this unusual time, please call ahead to be sure your favorite dining spot is open, hours, safety precautions and more. more »
