Great place to hike! Really love this big open area. Feels like you can get lost here if you manage to ignore the sounds of the Hwy 50 traffic. Other than that it feels like you have the whole place to yourself. Plenty of wild life, scenic hills you can scramble up for a view of the lake and the surrounding foothills of the Sierra. Lots of densely forested areas with accessible trails for all levels. If you do not respect nature then stay the hell out!

Decent hike for being close but I wouldn't travel to far for this one. Did the whole loop and ended up doing 12.7 miles due to a detour on the trail as you get closer to Old Folsom. The loop is mostly on a paved bike trail so keep and eye out for bikers cause there are many. I brought my dog and they are allowed as long as they are one a leash but keep in mind on a hot day the pavement will be to much for their paws and dog boots are mandatory.

it's been a while since I have done any regular hiking and my boyfriend and I want to start doing it more so we figured we would give this one a try. it was a good hike/walk. thinks to keep in mind when preparing for it. Sunscreen and a hat are a must! I'm pretty fair and my boy friend is darker, we both got burnt, me worse than him but it is still noticable. bring lots of water if you're going to do it as a good part of the trail is without cover. there are several picnic tables on the folsom side. I suggest walking until you fine one with a view of the lake. it was a good starter. I think shorter hikes with the pups for a little while before we try to tackle another longer one.

Great trail, even tho bikers are a bit rude even if you stay on your lane. Other than that is great!!!
Kids love skipping rocks.
We start behind Dos Coyotes.

A lot of cyclist because it is made for them. Preferred terrain instead of pavement coz is not good for your feet and legs if not use to it but we still did 12miles. So not bad for the goal but will not be back unless we get into cycling

I love the trails. The only down side is that some of the bikers don't like having pedestrians on the trails, even though we stay in our lane.

This was a great easy trail. Minor elevation changes. About 11.5 miles total. There were a good amount of bikers and joggers but it wasn't terrible. If you try and start at Negro Bar Park like I did, you end up paying 10.00 to park. I highly recommend parking on a side street somewhere nearby. The whole trail was paved but there are plenty of offshoots to go on which are dirt.
