It's a fun trail but mostly a bike trail not very walker friendly and not very scenic.... Think it will be more fun when art work is up

Can't wait -- Fall 2017 the trail will be finished! They're adding an undercrossing at Prison Road, and the rest of the trail will continue behind the City Hall complex, and there's gonna be a 190-foot wooden bridge with amazing views of the American River and Lake Natoma.

The full trail will be approx 3 miles long, but it will also connect to Historic Folsom District and the American River Parkway trail if you like a longer ride.

Anyone who visited while only phase I was complete should return this fall for a walk, hike, or ride along the fully completed loop. This trail is only getting better and better!

The part I did, starting in granite bay was not very strenuous. Scenery was ok, a little confusing about where to go.

Would've been more stars if the trail wasn't closed a mile in, went early morning on a week day hardly any other people on the trail except for bikers when I got to the closed trail portion. Lots of little trails that lead down to the lake. The stretch on the way back is along the bike trail, so I just turned around to stay on the wide dirt trail for the way back instead. I couldn't imagine how crowded this would be during the weekend

Only did part of the trail. Lots of sun and Scenery is not that varied.

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.
