Rocklin is approximately 22 miles from Sacramento. With the American River as well as the Sierra Nevada mountains nearby, the area is filled with places for outdoor activities – hiking, biking, river rafting, swimming, etc. – with ski resorts a short 70-mile drive away. The Pacific Coast can be reached in 2-3 hours traveling west. Rocklin and the surrounding areas attract many ages of people from seniors, looking for a place with a great climate and relaxing way of life, to young families with young children needing a safe and still relatively modest (for California) cost of living.
