Walkin’ Boots hike, May 10, 2016, 9 AM, North Natomas Regional Park, Sacramento
We’ll be walking in the North Natomas Regional Park, one of Sacramento’s newest parks. The park is a blend of developed areas (dog park, baseball/softball fields, playground, bridges over creeks) and undeveloped areas (meadows, open space, geese, loons, rabbits and wide open vistas). The walk is a nearly flat 3.5 miles (with a shorter option for those who want it).

Distance: 3.5 paved miles (but at the 2-1/2-mile mark, one could choose to exit the walk early).
Difficulty: Easy, nearly flat.
