American River Bike Trail (Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail)

Beals Point

August, 2020 by kctmatsu

There is a $12 fee to park because it is a State Park. If you want to get to lake you’ll have a little walk because Folsom Lake is low right now. If you’re looking to jump on your bike and ride this is a nice starting point. We were there the first week of August and it was a little warm. I would recommend lots of water. The trail has some inclines so be aware you’ll get a little exercise. I would recommend this trail. It is paved and seem to be pretty well maintained.

Folsom South Canal Recreation Trail

A Good Place to Practice

August, 2020 by monika20s

A nice place for bikes without automobile or pedestrian interference. I completed my first 20+ mile ride done on this trail. One spot stunk like fertilizer. Almost 0 shade, so make sure you have your sun protection on.

Ygnacio Canal Trail

Trail Map needs updating...Can't go through Golf Course!!

July, 2020 by gdavis3000

Tried this trail, but ended in disaster. Starting at the "Heather Park" end, after crossing Marchbanks Rd, I encountered Diablo Hills Golf Course. Map routes through the golf course to Kinross Dr, but once I entered the green, I was "politely" chased away by a lady in a golf cart yelling, "You can't be here... this is private property... you could be killed" (assume she meant by a line-drive).

When you get to Marchbanks Dr, turn left, go down to Ygnacio, hang a right, then pick up the trail.

Trail is under levee construction and has been buried in dirt. Hopefully it will still be there when the construction is over.

Folsom South Canal Recreation Trail

99% Flat and Mostly Boring

June, 2020 by joecool_tl

Once in a while I like to ride the canal to just have a long, flat stretch to ride with no climbing. The only "climbs" are the few places where you may have to go up an overpass and then back down onto the canal. As for scenery, well, there ain't none. Its a boring ride but nice and flat and not crowded at all, particularly toward the south end. Its a great place where I take new riders to get them used to their bikes, changing gears etc. without the chance of being stuck on a hill in the wrong gear.
As others have mentioned, for some reason, they keep the far south end of the trail closed off completely which seems very odd. On one ride there I followed a contract security officer down to the south end at Sloughhouse Road. He was opening the gate on the south side of the road and I was preparing to follow him in there when he informed me that that was the end of the public access; it was closed completely from that point south. I wish that they would change this; seems a bit ridiculous to not allow bikes/hikers access to that area.
All in all, if you rode the entire accessible area of the trail from one end to another, it totals nearly 13 miles. I generally start near Sunrise/16 at the Park-n-Ride Lot there, ride south to where its closed off, turn around and ride all the way north to the Fish Hatchery and turn around and come back. There are no longer any restrooms along the trail (they used to have at least one porta-potty however I'm sure that was probably vandalized enough to make them remove it. But, being as isolated as most stretches are, particularly near the south end, its not much of a problem.
The American River Bike trail is much more scenic but crowded, particularly on weekends. But if you're looking for a great stretch of flat riding without the crowds, the canal is it.

Folsom South Canal Recreation Trail

A nice discovery

June, 2020 by recsep

Not conventionally beautiful, but a great ride along the canal through some industrial and suburban landscapes. The trail is mostly in good condition for road bikes. Didn’t see many other riders, most of the company was in the form of a nice variety of birds. Even though it’s man-made, it’s nice to have the water alongside you the whole way. Very little shade, so if you’re going in summer bring a lot of water or choose a cloudy day. I’ll definitely ride this one again!

Iron Horse Regional Trail

Great trail for running, walking and bike riding.

June, 2020 by fabkillian

Lots of families, bike riders and people on parts of the trail through out the day. Lots of places to stop for restroom, food, etc. Safe for single riders.

Calaveras River Bike Path

I don’t recommend this trail

June, 2020 by bradlooney5050

I just got back from trying this trail out and I was very disappointed!! I started off Cherokee and the trail starts near there. Not even 2 miles Ahead you will find the homeless on both sides of creek. I counted almost 2 dozen. They were definitely not happy I was there. As I go along I’m passing project housing and run down apartment buildings. My buddy was robbed by the homeless so I was very uncomfortable. I turned around and went back to my truck and left. Trail is paved pretty flat for the most part. I really started liking the trail but I’m too uncomfortable. Anyway try it out and maybe you’ll end up liking the trail. Be safe
