Yes it’s primarily a bike path, but dog walkers will find much to enjoy along the shaded, 4.4-mile Alamo Creek Bikeway, which meanders through southern Vacaville and connects several municipal parks, including Nelson, Patwin and Beelard. 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.
The Southside trail follows the route of the old Sacramento Northern Railway, a 183-mile, electrified interurban train system that carried travelers between Northern California communities in the days before every family had a car. Flora and fauna along both trails are rich and diverse, and it gets colorful in fall!Posted on: June 30, 2022
