Great walk. There are many places to start/end. We really like starting in downtown Folsom or at the trailhead parking lot of Parkshore Drive. You can choose to walk on the paved path or there is a rather nice dirt path used for "hiking", mountain bikes, and horses that is between the paved path and the river. It is nicely shaded and meanders nicely through the foliage.

Great afternoon walk. We went on a Friday afternoon and while we did see a good number of people biking/ running/ walking, it was by no means busy or crowded.

Nice meander trail with a lot of options to get off the main path and enjoy the lake!

Pretty cool cliff areas to jump off if going on a swim but the bikers are very rude.. had two bump into me and almost made me fall then one of them had the audacity to say "watch out" and shake his head as if it was my fault.. I was on the far left btw.

Bikers are very rude and will run you off! We stayed on the left as the posting stated and still got run into the weeds. The trail is wonderful, wish the bikers knew how to share

My favorite trail in the Folsom/sacramento area. The trail follows the river and weaves in and out of the trees. The majority of it is under trees, so it will be nice during the summer.

This is the southern portion of the Lake Natomas loop. Part of it is right along the freeway which is awful but thankfully short lived. The trail is shaded and good for hike and bike.
