Waterton Access is a small site providing access along the river. Deer, coyotes and jackrabbits can sometimes be seen as they take on their traditional roles of hunter and hunted by the river’s edge. The nearby S.A.R.A. Access offers similar opportunity. The S.A.R.A. property was the first parcel purchased for the American River Parkway, thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Save the American River Association.
