The 1.5 mile New York Creek Nature Trail offers a peaceful and shaded walk under the oak trees that line New York Creek.
The southern end of the trail begins in the Community Park along Harvard Way, across from Oak Ridge High School. The northern end is in Art Weisberg Park, across from Jackson Elementary School.
In 1972 Pacific States Development Corporation granted a Gift Deed to El Dorado Hills CSD for Parcels 1 and 2, which was the first area of what is now New York Creek Nature Trail. In 1986 the area was enlarged when Developers Reynen, Bardis & Winn conveyed to the CSD an 11-acre parcel along New York Creek, for use as an open space natural area.
The CSD has been fortunate to have many Eagle Scout projects at New York Creek, including installation of trail signs, benches, birdhouses, bulletin boards, planting 15-gallon oak trees as well as general cleanup and trail improvement.
In the event you witness or find vandalism at this park, please call the CSD at 916-933-6624.
