Fair Oaks Bluff Park Reserve
Make sure to visit our neighbor, Fair Oaks, and their lovely hiking trail! This hiking trail is short and sweet with cliffs that make it a great spot overlooking the American River. Since parking is limited, we recommend adding an extra mile to your adventure by parking at Village Fair Oaks. We also recommend hiking close to Golden Hour for a breathtaking experience.
Starting Aug. 29, 2022, a stretch of the American River Parkway Trail—from the El Manto entrance to the Sunriver Park entrance—will be closed for two months for construction. Learn more here.
The American River Parkway is known for its many options for recreational activities, but its hiking trails are a must! This hike is an easy two (2) miles with paved roads. There’s lots of shade and sunlight, which is perfect for walking your dog (don’t forget the leash and doggy bags!) and birding. While this is an easy and accessible hike, we recommend following the small trails to avoid bikers and heavy foot traffic.
