We are very fortunate to live in the Roseville area where we have easy access to many miles of trails. As spring weather approaches, plan on making time to get out and take advantage of the many beautiful trails that are in the area. Some of the more popular trails are the trails at Maidu Park, the Pleasant Grove Trail, Miners' Ravine Trail and False Ravine Trail.
The Maidu Regional Park's 152 acres has 2 pedestrian/bike trails; one that goes around the entire park (2 miles) and a smaller trail that stays in the interior of the park. Other features of the park include a museum and historic site, as well as sporting amenities like a four diamond lighted softball complex, five field lighted soccer complexes, a regulation-size covered soccer arena, a skate park, a full basketball court, a children's playground and many picnic areas. The parks grounds also house a Community Center, a library, and a Veterans Memorial Rose Garden.
Nestled in the Blue Oaks community, this trail was recently extended to the Fiddyment Road Trail and now connects the Blue Oaks, Fiddyment Farms and West Park communities. As you walk or bike the Pleasant Grove Trail you will come across Blue Oaks Park and Veterans Memorial Park while enjoying beautiful oak trees and vast open space areas. This trail is currently a little over 4 miles making it perfect for an afternoon walk with the family.
You can catch the beginning of False Ravine Trail at False Ravine Park on Carradale in East Roseville. It also has easy access from the Stoneridge area neighborhoods. False Ravine Trail is frequented by runners but is also great for cyclists. The abundant trees and creek make for a very enjoyable walk. If you follow it to the other end at Sierra College, it is a total of 3 miles. Where it ends at Sierra College, it also connects to Miners' Ravine Trail.
My favorite trail is Miners Ravine. If I walk it from the beginning in downtown Roseville (start of the trailhead is on Folsom Road) to the end at the trailhead on Sierra College Blvd, it is a nice 7.5 mile walk. This is a very popular and scenic trail and is great for families, kids, dogs, and cyclists. A good portion of the trail parallels Dry Creek crossing several bridges as the trail curves and dips around the creek. The trail then winds its way through plenty of open space; greenery; and wildflowers. If you look for them, you can see some wild turkeys and ancient Indian grinding stones. There are quite a few shaded sections so even on a sunny, warm day you can stop for a shaded rest. This is a great trail for running, cycling or for an afternoon family walk!
How To Find Great Hiking Trails In Roseville, California
Our city has a maps of the trails on their website, Roseville.ca.us. Personally, I like AllTrails.com (they also have a great app and it is free). We use the AllTrails app to find new trails and to map our routes. Another great feature of the site and app is that it allows you to rate the trail. I like to read others ratings and comments as it helps me determine which trails to take. The ratings note if it is easy, moderate or difficult, and additional notes will let you know if it is kid and pet-friendly. We have an abundant amount of trails in the greater Sacramento area and we have found some great trails thru the AllTrails app that we never knew existed!
