Thanks to The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust, the bikes-only path has been saved and expanded to include a horse trail.
Looking to the west has spectacular views of farmland, waterways and wildlife. Looking North, on a clear day, you can see the foothills and snowcapped mountains. It's how I remember the the valley when I'd ride out for hours as a university student, and I'm glad to see some of it's been saved despite the city's expansion.
