California parks workers will take to the American River Parkway Trail between Beals Point and Negro Bar park units in the coming weeks to perform needed brush and tree trimming.

According to a state news release, officials are asking trail users to slow down as crews work to create more visibility along the trail.  The Trail will remain open during the work, but there may be brief delays as workers remove trees and larger limbs leaning across the trail. 

“This heavily used section of trail is enjoyed by pedestrians, cyclists and equestrians and we understand that this work may result in a slight inconvenience for many of our park visitors, said Superintendent Rich Preston.   “We ask for the public’s cooperation by slowing down when approaching the work areas and follow the directions of the staff on site.”

For questions regarding this project contact California State Parks at (916) 988-0205.
