Delta Highway 160 - Sacramento Auto Museum Run - Saturday February 19th

Your Host For The Event: Mike Zampiceni

We'll be starting on Highway 4 from Concord and will mostly be driving on scenic Highway 160 in the Delta along the Sacramento River for 36 miles after we leave Concord. We will stop at Ramos Park in Isleton for a bio break and photo opportunity. We'll then continue for another 36 miles on the River Road and merge with Highway 5 north just east of Freeport. 

We'll exit at Broadway just south of Old Town to avoid the maze at the convergence of highways 5 and 50 for a stress-free arrival at the museum.

We'll arrive at approximately 11:30, and there's plenty of parking either in the paved portion or the larger gravel lot adjacent. We may want another group picture before entering the museum. Depending on availability, a docent may guide us through the collection. Figure on about an hour at the museum. 

Cost to enter the museum: $10 for Adults - $9 for military and over 65 - $5 for youth 5-17


There's lots to do in the general area around Old Town for the balance of the day, including visiting the California State Railroad Museum.


Several lunch options are available in Old Town, which less than a mile away. Note: You may wish to bring along a snack just in case. Lots to see at the museum so you may not finish till after 1. For those of you who want to drive there, there's a parking garage adjacent. If the weather holds, it's only 8/10ths of a mile on the walkway along the river, which is what I'm planning on doing to build up an appetite and walk it off afterwards.

Addition notes for the event:

Fully charged radios required. The club will not be loaning any radios until restrictions are lifted. 

Drive with your lights on. We'll be driving on 2-lane narrow roads most of the way. NOTE:  The drive through the delta will be on levee roads raised probably at least 20 feet from either end of the roadway. Please give your full attention to driving and avoid distractions. We don't want anyone plummeting over the embankment!

Toll for the Antioch Bridge is $7, and if you don't have FasTrak, they'll send you an invoice in the mail. Museum admission is $10, $9 for 65+, and $5 for 5 - 17. 

Lastly, happiness is a full tank and empty bladder!
