Is the Parkway Safe?

Sacramento magazine, in its January 2006 issue, has a very good article on the American River Parkway. Entitled Into the Wild, by Andrea Todd, it is about the safety of the Parkway, an important issue for our organization and an area where we feel the current management has failed in its stewardship.

There is no link to the article but here is the opening paragraph:

“THE 32-MILE AMERICAN RIVER PARKWAY is arguably the greatest natural recreational resource in our state—if not our nation. More people use the parkway’s Jedediah Smith memorial Bicycle Trail (which runs from Discovery Park to Folsom Dam), a county park, on a given day than any other national or state park. Secluded, the parkway is idyllic. BUT IS IT SAFE? From poison oak to perverts, here’s what every trailblazer needs to know before venturing out.”

So pick up a copy at the grocery and give it a read, on pages 102-110.
