The Central Valley is both California’s breadbasket and a jumping-off point for excursions to wine country, Gold Country, the Bay Area and Lake Tahoe.

Thanks to our friends at dog-friendly Visit Vacaville for supporting the Central Valley Region pages on DogTrekker.com.
The Central Valley comprises parts of 11 counties and stretches from Kern County in the south to Vacaville and Yolo County just west of Sacramento, plus Glenn and Yuba Counties further north.

Want to keep going? The trail intersects the Southside Bikeway connecting downtown Vacaville to the north and Al Patch Park (sports fields and restrooms!) to the south. more »
