Bridle Trail

Average Rating:    (2 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

The Bridel Trail that starts right at Auburn Blvd. and Norris Avenue and it is almost all singletack. Although this trail could really use some help it is a great round a bout ride. I would estimate the length at about threeto four miles.It goes right by haggin oaks golf course as soon as you get to the end you will come to the wooden bridge cross over and than turn right.(if you turn left you will end up going to part of the golf corse that dead ends after crossing cement drainage pipes.) this take you back towards the horsemans association that you ride through.(behave through here).There are some sandy sections on the way back and some tall thorn bushes.The end of the trail is almost right back where you started. there is plenty of other side trails to explore. Again watch out for horses because they ride here to, not that often that I have seen.

Summary:
short trail pretty flat but great for early morning ride or after work out and back from mad cat bicycles is about 10 miles depending on your route trail improvements are being made by someone besides me that are helping to make it more enjoyable plenty of lines to ride
share the trail horse people are nice if you stop to let them pass some bums some drug dooers but numbers have dwindled a lot lately all the people i come across are friendly though
DONT GO OUTTA YOUR WAY TO COME RIDE HERE

Summary:
For an urban trail, this trail is great for after work or for a quick ride. Lots of improvements have been made since some of the other reviews. new trails opened. appropriate for beginners and above. Some trails have ladder bridges to get across fallen logs, these are great to improve mtb skills.

Recommended Route:
either park at the light rail station off of longveiw and ride east towards auburn and norris. Or start at del paso park and ride to the light rail station.

Summary:
An update - the construction I mentioned is now complete. There is now a paved bridge that connects the west side of the park to the neighborhood on the other side of the creek right before the overpasses. What this means is you can now ride in a "figure-8" on this trail as well as other combos because this new bridge bicects the loop. Also, the heavy rains this past winter really tore up the North Eastern leg between the horse ranch and the new bridge - lots of new sand from it being underwater.

Recommended Route:
Use the new bridge to skip the northern overpasses section and still ride the northeastern section that runs along the neighborhoods as this is my favorite part (it's the least flat and there's no thorn-y weeds).

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There used to be some good, though illegal, horse trails in both Ancil Hoffman and Goathe Parks; otherwise there isn't much in the heart of suburban Sacramento.

Summary:
It's understandable that the other posts about this trail were pissed off - they drove out of their way to ride a "real" trail and then only found the loop around the baseball diamand and park. But I have to give this trail a more positive review as I found it by accident while riding my bike around my new neighborhood after a bad day at work and fight with my wife. I was adventurous enough (of pissed enough) to go off the beaten path and find some jumps and where the loop splits off to the more rugged part of the trail that goes under the freeway and along the golf course until you cross the creek and go by some horse stables on your return. For not expecting anything to be out there I was stoked! It's two blocks from my house and a great trail to train on during the week. I can ride the WHOLE trail in about an hour afterwork and still have enough daylight to make it home. As to the junkies, they are a disenfranchised part of society looking for a place to escape just like you... and it makes you ride faster!

Recommended Route:
Warm up on the loop that goes around the baseball diamond and park. Explore the offshoots around the creek. Then take the trail by the creek west away from the baseball diamond around the back of the parking lot between the fence and the creek (there is some construction going on there now). This will take you under a series of overpases (a headlamp will help you avoid running over a junkie in the dark). Then just follow the golf course and cross the wooden footbridge at the the trun around like the summary says.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Salmon falls, Goethe park horse trails

Summary:
This trail sucks! Its flat, much shorter then advertised, overgrown and inhabited by junkies.

It could be a good trail if the cops came in and rousted the druggies, someone put some effort into cleaning up the trail and maybe putting in some man made sort of challenges. However, as it stands I did three laps around the trail in under 20 minutes.

The only interesting part is off of the side of the trial. Two junkies getting high and then getting on each other as I came rolling by made for an interesting scene.

THIS IS NOT A SAFE TRAIL!

Recommended Route:
Anywhere else.
