A rolling trail along the shore of Folsom Lake.

Bill Lyon

Features Lake

You need a poppy pass or to pay $10 per car to park.

Description

This is a moderate trail that is lots of fun. The trail is multi-use, so be sure to watch out for bikers and other runners. The trail follows along the shore of Lake Folsom connecting between Salmon Falls Trailhead and the Old Salmon Falls Trailhead. The trail has some rolling ups and downs along the way, but nothing too steep or challenging.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of poison oak grows in this area!
