By far my favorite trail on Folsom Lake. Wide enough to walk side by side with your hiking buddy most of the way. Natural spring and breathtaking pond.

Great hike with two 7 year olds. Pond full of turtles. Great place to picnic.

Holy roasted ticks Batman!!! The lower trail is not just muddy, a lot of it has been blocked by fallen trees, landslides, etc. we had to eventually climb up the face of hills, because we ran out of trail to hike. when we finally got home, our dog had 8 ticks. she does have flea and tick treatment. if you plan on going on this hike, do not bring your pets, and stay on the main trail. it may be a lot of incline, but it is much safer, especially for inexperienced hikers.

Great trail for a run but definitely not a good one to bring a dog to. We had to turn back half way to the pond due to all of the ticks. Would try it again to see the pond but definitely without our dog.
