Just before the stop sign, turn right into the Penn Valley Village Center. The trailhead is in the shopping center. Look for the paved path and a “Bike Path – Begin” sign in the most southerly part of the shopping center parking lot — close to the intersection of Penn Valley Drive and Spenceville Road (N39.19731 W121.17710). The path goes out to and across Penn Valley Drive where it turns west and follows Penn Valley Drive.

The pathway then continues for another 1.3 miles to its end at Pleasant Valley Road. (The main entrance to Western Gateway Park is 0.9 miles from the trailhead in the Penn Valley Village Center.)
