Dry Creek Greenway Regional Vision

In January, 1996, a Concept Report for the Dry Creek Greenway was produced through a collaborative effort by representatives of Placer and Sacramento Counties; the Cities of Roseville, Rocklin, and Sacramento; the Town of Loomis, the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency, the Trust for Public Lands, and the National Park Service. This report proposed the development of an open space system through northeastern Sacramento County and southwestern Placer County following the Dry Creek floodplain from its headwaters in Miners and Secret Ravines to its mouth at Steelhead Creek, formerly known as the Natomas East Main Drainage Canal. Since the publication of that document, Sacramento County has created the Dry Creek Parkway Plan that formally established the Parkway from Steelhead Creek to the Sacramento-Placer County line.

The March 10, 2004 "Dry Creek Greenway Regional Vision" document describes the various open space corridors and trail elements that comprise the Greenway.
