Sacramento County

Sacramento County

Visit the Gold Country
Sacramento County, with about 1.4 million people, has the highest population density in California’s 450-mile-long Central Valley. Its centerpiece is Sacramento, the state’s capital city, where the most obvious attraction for DogTrekkers is the  32-mile American River Parkway. This shady and beloved greenbelt cradles a multi-use trail that stretches from the Old Sacramento historic district all the way to Folsom Lake. Along the way are parks, picnic areas and beaches. Dogs are allowed almost everywhere at Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, an 18,000-acre preserve with 80 miles of dog-friendly trails as well as ample access to the water.

In the southwest portion of the Sacramento County lies the Sacramento/San Joaquin River Delta, largest estuary on the West Coast. A string of small, dog-friendly towns and marina communities invite exploring in a region widely known for fishing and boating opportunities.

Sacramento is hot, hot, hot—and we’re not talking summer weather. The restaurant and craft brewery scene here has exploded of late, and thanks to a (usually) mild climate, outdoor dining is ubiquitous, and almost every restaurant and brewery patio in town is dog-friendly. more »

Several family-friendly excursion trains in California welcome dogs as well as parents, grandparents and youngsters aboard. Here’s a rundown. more »
