Welcome to the “jewel of Sacramento,” the 23-mile American River Parkway from the confluence of the Sacramento River up to the Folsom Dam. More than 5 million visitors enjoy this unique wildlife and recreation area annually. Fishing, boating and rafting opportunities lure water enthusiasts. Picnic sites, golfing, guided natural and historic tours and much more are often just steps away from the paved trails. Access to the Parkway is available at various points off Point West, Arden Arcade, and along Highway 50.
