Sacramento County park rangers have been able to clean up enough of the American River Parkway Trail that they expect to have at least 20 of the park’s 23 miles open this weekend.
The trail runs from Discovery Park, where the American River meets the Sacramento River, to the Nimbus Dam in Folsom.
The area that will remains closed will be the three mile stretch that runs through Discovery Park, which still remains under water. This stretch isn’t expected to reopen until late April or early May.
the Sunrise Recreation Area, the pedestrian bridge remains closed after water rose up and over the bridge in February damaging the railings. This was the highest it has been in 20 years.
“We decided to walk across the river and now we can’t, it’s honestly really annoying,” Andrew Lloyd said. Lloyd and a friend were forced to take the long way around on Sunrise Boulevard to reach Folsom.
Repairs aren’t expected to be finished on the bridge until late May.
