Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG)
In 2022, SACOG successfully adopted and launched the Sacramento Regional Trail Network that envisions a 1,000 mile trail network to connect community members across city and county boundaries. This would greatly increase the active transportation options for the Capital Region and reduce the reliance on cars.
Development of the plan consisted of careful review of over 80 local, state, and regional plans that address trails and active transportation, and included a survey of more than 3,000 community members. The resulting network focuses on filling gaps, increasing access in disadvantaged areas in the region, and creating a cohesive network that leads to civic amenities such as parks, restaurants, and more.
If you are interested in helping to increase interest in this trail network SACOG has made promotional materials available here.
