The Arcade-Cripple Creek Trail Project is part of a larger trail within the City of Citrus Heights. The City’s General Plan, Bikeway Master Plan, and Pedestrian Master Plan depict a trail along Arcade Creek from Wachtel Way to Van Maren Lane (near Sylvan Library).
Outside the City of Citrus Heights, Sacramento County’s Bikeway Master Plan anticipates additional trail construction east of Citrus Heights towards the American River trail. The Sacramento County Bikeway Master Plan is available here: http://www.sacdot.com/Documents/A%20to%20Z%20Folder/Bikeways/SCBMP_North_Wallmap_Rev4.pdf (Note: this is a very large file and may take several minutes to download depending on connection speeds.)
In addition, the City of Roseville’s Dry Creek Greenway project terminates near the northeast corner of the City of Citrus Heights near Old Auburn Road and South Cirby Way (See Map). The Dry Creek Greenway connects to the west through downtown Roseville, under Interstate 80 and ending at Cook Riolo Road and further west in Placer County.
Further, a 60- mile regional vision was established connecting south Placer County and North Sacramento County to other regional trails via the Dry Creek Greenway. This regional effort proposes connecting this area to the American River Parkway in Folsom as well as the Ueda parkway in Sacramento County. The Arcade-Cripple Creek Trail plays an important role in the connecting the City of Citrus Heights to the broader regional trail vision.
