In August of 1983, a lawsuit was settled between the County of Sacramento and various property owners along a portion of the Arcade-Cripple Creek Trail Project alignment. The lawsuit pertained to property rights through three separate subdivisions answering the question of whether or not the County owns a hiking, equestrian and bikeway easement over various properties. Ultimately, the judgment of the court was that the there is an easement over two of the three subdivisions including Sunrise Farms No. 2, and Farmette Hills. There is no easement over the properties developed as part of Sunrise Farms.
