The dog-friendly Southside Bikeway connects downtown Vacaville via a former Sacramento Northern Railway corridor to the city’s southern neighborhoods near Al Patch Park.
The route is a nice, short path, ideal for family and neighborhood rides, runs or walks. Near Eugene Padan Elementary School, the path also intersects the Alamo Creek Bikeway, a scenic trail that runs both east and west along Alamo Creek.
Parking for the Southside Bikeway is available at Al Patch Park on California Drive, not far from the trail’s southern endpoint. From the park, follow the sidewalk west along California Drive just a couple hundred feet to reach the Southside Bikeway.
