Long description

Peet's Coffee is open daily Sun-Sat 6am-7pm; call for holiday hours. Start box is on floor near front door. If you don't see the walk box, ask an employee; often they take it to the back room. Water/restrooms are at the start/midpoint/finish. This route consists of 2 loops, the 1st loop is 5k with an optional 1k loop, the 2nd loop is 6k. Enjoy the peacefulness of paved paths along Elk Grove Creek's seasonal watershed; home to salamanders, turtles, frogs, egrets, great blue herons, and the endangered Swainson hawk. Also explore Elk Grove's new Rain Garden; the 1st in California, designed for water conservation and to showcase native, drought-resistant plants. This route is in its prime late winter through spring when the creek and ponds are full and wildlife is at its peak. The optional 1k loop tops the new bike bridge over Hwy 99, rated 2A.
