MATHER FIELD LAKE REGIONAL PARK
This former Air Force base is now a 1600-acre recreational park with so many sights to see during your next run! As you run along the beautiful bass & trout-filled lake, you get to take in all the natural beauty from rare vernal pools (and its slippery residents) to migrating birds in the fall and spring.
NIMBUS FLAT/LAKE NATOMA
Nimbus Flat is a favorite among Sacramento County locals! Nimbus Flat trails go along Lake Natoma, where the open water and peaceful sounds of wildlife make this run worthwhile. Here, you can get the best of both worlds between the land and water. Not only can you run into cute turtles and birds, but also see people enjoying the water on their kayaks or small boats. Tired of running? No worries! There are many picnic areas to take in the beautiful scenery.
HAGAN COMMUNITY PARK
Hagan Community Park, which also runs along the American River, has a wide variety of places to run! Get that fairytale feeling as you run along the luscious grass underneath the trees—let's not forget about the cute pups running around. You can also check out their athletic & soccer fields, which are great places to run laps around. Hagan Community Park also has 15 BBQ pits, which are great for picnics and COVID-friendly reunions!
