Not much artwork was up when we did this trail. Great for bicycles but on the boring side for hikers. I think once the new trees that they planted grow taller - and when more artwork is added then it could be a better hiking experience.

Looking to do it again in five years - but not going back before then.

Path is paved and level. However, much of this walk is too close to the streets with many cars driving by, so it was loud and not peaceful. Not a repeat for us.

The trail itself is easy and really pretty but the downfall is dealing with all of the mountain bikes. There are places to jump out of the way through most of the trail but space is very limited in a couple of areas.

Awesome place to get out close to home! Very well maintained trail system!

Went here on 4/1/18. Made it to the mine but it was closed off with cement, which was disappointing. A lot of people on the trail and parking was difficult. Maybe it was because it was Easter? Good day trip hike. The middle fork of the American river was running high and always beautiful up in this location.

Love the 6.3 miles of this, but glad we started out along the main roads first. Very hard to talk with the cars going by, but the lake and dam are neat to see. Last legs of the hike are much prettier. As always, bikers are not very courteous and act like us walkers/hikers are invading their private trails. Ignore them. Glad we had a camelback with us for water, but this hike isn’t too difficult, just a little longer (which I loved!). No Art installed yet, but looking forward to that in the future.

on Hidden Falls Trail

Awesome!!! Also make sure you have plenty of high quality H2O.

Hike was pretty chill going clockwise around the trail is pretty chill... it’s more downhill in the start then uphill on the way back!

Waterfall was cool but would have been cooler if you could go in it! Water was also pretty murky so did not jump in! There are two good lookout points along the trail (ones at the waterfall and one is just over the bridge after the waterfall)

Went on a Wednesday around 3:30pm and didn’t need reservations but you may need them on a busier day!

Overall the hike is more of a trail walk... would have given it a 3 Star if there wasn’t a waterfall to see!

Overall 3.5 stars!

Excellent and clean trail. Perfect for families. In the middle of Roseville but feels like you’re in nature.

One of my favorite trails with the kids. It's not really a hike, more of a walk. It can get very muddy after a rain, but we like to play in the puddles, and just bring extra clothes. The paths do have deep ruts, but they don't bother us, although we occasionally ride bikes and they could be a problem if someone has training wheels. Overall, it's a fabulous little-known trail.

This trail has been on my list to go for about a year; finally decided to go. Parking was a little different, you have to buy your parking tickets online before going. There's no ticket attendant to sell you tickets to get in but there is a park ranger checking if you bought the ticket.

The trail wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be. I had thought the trail would be near water majority of the time but I was wrong. Overall hiking experience was fine, easy, small steep hills and plenty of shades from surrounding trees.

Waterfall is fun to watch as well. Although the waterfall didn't appear to be that big maybe because there was no snow or rain lately.

Attempted fishing as well but no luck. I fished at the two waterfalls in hopes that it was fish and it looks like it had fish but nothing was caught.

It's a pretty nice trail! Did the full loop this morning. Took me 4 hours to hike the whole thing. It was pretty muddy. The trail seemed like a small creek at some parts! Be prepared to bring some good hiking shoes for this! The trail is marked out fairly well. A few of the mile markers are scratched off though. There was maybe two times thy I had to take a minute to figure out where I was going but it was fairly easy to figure out. Views are decent, nothing too crazy. But overall, a solid hike! Just wish it wasn't so muddy.

on Johnny Cash Trail

So first of all... this art trail isn’t complete just yet, so if you want to check out the fully paved trail and see some of the finished installations then check it out but I will be returning once it’s fully done! ALSO very important to note that the location All Trails sends you to is actually the Folsom city hall building/ parking lot. The actual entrance to the trail is by the Dan Russel Rodeo Arena, where you can easily park. This trail is a loop so there are various other locations where you could begin the trail but there is plenty of parking if you just google map it to the rodeo arena instead. This is a 6.3 mile trail that is VERY bike, stroller friendly and pet friendly. The loop does go around Folsom prison for part of it ... but again if you’re a Johnny Cash fan you’ll understand why that is and why that’s actually pretty cool! Overall a pretty cool trail and we can’t wait for it to finally be finished because it’s pretty darn cool to see them commemorate Johnny cash how they’ve done so far and to see everything else they’re planning on installing!

Did the full loop and it was a beautiful hike. I love how you can take the side trails that branch off the the main legacy trail. Just beware of all the horse poop!

Great hike!

Terrain-wise quite easy. It’s not simply a “1.8mi loop” as described... it’s a large network of paths that go all over the place. I did more or less a loop this time out and it added up to 3 miles.

There’s definitely potential for rattlesnakes during the right times of the year. I agree with another reviewer that it seems to lean towards equestrian more than human travel, but it’s a good walk nonetheless and there are areas blocked off to equestrian travel, so it’s obviously not intended to be equestrian-only.

The Nisenan grinding stones were a welcome surprise.

I plan to come back a few times to explore more paths and also check out the wildlife during different times of the year.

Different from most trails I've hiked, but I enjoyed it. Did the entire trail and loved the views.

weekdays are where it's at. Beautiful hike.

This is a beautiful trail that follows the middle fork. It takes you to the old cave mines. The trial is kid and stroller friendly. We saw a river otter, bald eagle, and ducks. Go on a nice warm day or bundle up because the trial is mostly in the shade.

Great for all levels. The rock climbing area is a must see- my highlight!

Parking can be tricky but the walk is lovely with awesome views of the river and nice rock formations. My 8 and 10 year old loved it. Some good geocaching along the trails too.
