We like coming here for the scenic trails and the quiet. There's miles of trails to go explore. Also there is a small dock for kayak access to the river. All in all good to visit for a relaxing day.

It is a nice forested collection of trails to walk along, a total of a few miles. The far loop is a must, and remember to check on the leaflet for numbers as you go along - you can learn even more about the park.

We were coming home from a trip and decided to see how far Franklin Blvd went. What a wonderful surprise! The drive was beautiful and we saw some really neat birds.

Amazing river reserve plenty of wild animals and beautiful landscapes. At a short drive from Sacramento, you can go there after knowing firstly Clarksburg, the Old Sugar Mill (wine tasting) and a beautiful road (160) with lots of vineyards.

This is a great place to view and photograph ducks. There are also trails through a variety of habitats. The unstaffed nature center is very small but informative. There are restrooms and picnic tables at the nature center.

I took my boys here and we were able to go on a nature hike with one of the docents. He introduced us to so many different elements of this area. We learned so much! Space for everyone. You are truly in nature.
