No worries—you can still experience some of Northern California’s best paddling with the help of the Capitol Corridor, the 170-mile train route that links San Jose to Sacramento/Auburn. The Capitol Corridor has plenty of scenic spots along the way where you can get out on the water and rent gear. In addition to the paddling areas right near Capitol Corridor train stations, you can also take advantage of Capitol Corridor’s dedicated bus connections or use other transit options to complete your travel to world-class paddling destinations.
