By Bike or By Foot
Home to over 90 parks, Elk Grove is a joy to explore in the open air, either by biking, walking, or running on our over 35 miles of trails. The City of Elk Grove’s map of area bike routes outlines different types of trails throughout the city, including multi use trails and protected bike lanes. A newly opened 1,400-foot-long bridge spans CA-99, allowing bikers, runners and pedestrians to easily move between east and west Elk Grove.
