Union Valley Bike Trail

Great for bikers or walkers

July, 2018 by svanarts

Beautiful scenery and an easy walk. We didn't see anyone on the trail the whole day we were there until we were walking back. There were lots of people in the campgrounds and on the lake though.

Humbug-Willow Creek Trail

Possibly the best trail in Sacramento - if you don't get lost!

June, 2018 by moontimber

The Traillink information is a little dated. The official Folsom site lists this trail as being 50 miles long, which is accurate but misleading. There are at least 50 miles of trails but it's a bunch of interconnected short trails and not one long route.

These trails are the craziest maze of paved trails I've ever been on. There are very few signs telling you where you are or which way to travel to get to a particular section or street, so if you decide to ride this trail take your GPS with you and a copy of the bike trail map or you will get lost. I took my family during the summer of 2017. We had a GPS and a printed map and we still took several wrong turns.

Even though you're probably going to get lost, it's well worth the trip. The trail meanders through apartment complexes from time to time, but you're generally surrounded by great scenery. We passed several ponds and creeks, and crossed over several scenic bridges. Folsom is a bike friendly community, and is safe enough that we weren't nervous after dark. If you can figure out where you are, there are plenty of places near the trail to get a meal. We found a few restrooms along our route and used the GPS to find food. Restaurants with outdoor tables and bike racks are a common sight in Folsom.

There aren't any towering hill climbs, but there were a few segments that were steep enough that I had to tow my five year old. If you're traveling with toddlers you should talk to a local bike shop to find an easy section. We didn't encounter anything that our nine year old couldn't handle.

I live near Discovery park, which is where the American River / Jedediah Smith bike trail starts. That trail connects to this trail system somewhere around mile marker 25. I usually pedal from Discovery park with my kids, so I don't think I've pedaled more than half of what's currently available in this trail system. As a result I can't vouch for every inch of it. However, the sections I have traveled are good enough that I would not hesitate to drive for three hours to come ride this trail if I wasn't local.

Two Rivers Trail

Not worth the effort yet

June, 2018 by moontimber

I tried this with my young kids in 2016. We started in Discovery park on the Jedediah Smith (American River Bike trail) , biked down to old Sac on the Sacramento River Bike Trail where we had some ice cream cones, and on the way back to Discovery park we decided to take this trail to 12th street, take the 12th street bridge (N Sacramento FWY) over to Northgate blvd and get back on to the Jedediah Smith trail.

The trail itself is in good condition and connects up to several other glorious area trails. It's paved the whole way with a few dirt spurs that go down to the river's edge and fairly open.

However,

I don't know where the photo that's featured for this trail was taken as I didn't see anything remotely similar on our route. There were a lot of homeless folks camped out along the route, and very few of the regular bikers and hikers that you normally see on the other trails. Getting off on 12th street was hair raising with little kids in tow, and there isn't a connector to put you back on the American River bike trail on the other side of the bridge, so if you don't know where you're going you might get lost and end up in a homeless camp.

If you're with a few buddies and it's still broad daylight, then it might be worth doing. Unfortunately, the trail gets very little traffic right now (so the police rarely patrol it) and it really doesn't go anywhere. If they ever build the trail out to the University it will might probably become a great trail. As of spring 2018 it's really not worth riding this trail even if you live here.

American River Bike Trail (Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail)

Great trail for road bikes

June, 2018 by cq8921483

This is a great trail that is a smooth ride with many benches and stopping points along the way, even a few restrooms as well. People are decently considerate on the trail but you will have the occasional "tour de Sacramento" guy going way too fast.

Also if you are a mountain biker steer clear, the Park Rangers do not mess around here and you don't want to be caught off the paved trail, there are many off road paths along the route but strictly no bikes on that part.

Truckee River Legacy Trail

Beautiful hike, but!

March, 2018 by delimashariff

It's such a beautiful trail. My only concern is that the dogs are not on leashes, they are allowed to run around freely. Yes they are adorable, playful whatever, but they have teeth!

Folsom South Canal Recreation Trail

Smooth and remote

March, 2018 by jamessink

If you are looking for a smooth ride without a lot of traffic, this is your trail. The first half near lake Natoma has been freshly repaved and is billiard table smooth. The two street crossings have signals but other than those, it's a great path for fast riding.

Folsom South Canal Recreation Trail

Very level ride.

December, 2017 by johnd01

I ride form the North end of the trail. Most riders do not go south of CA16, Jackson Rd. The channel is cut to a very flat slope, and the train follows that slope almost all the way to CA16.
There are sections below grade where the sun and wind do not go in late afternoon. If you are looking for a place to practice your speed riding this is one of the best. It is a great tie-in with CA16 which has wide bike lanes for all but a short section at Rancho Murieta to CA49.
Ride 10.5 miles from Nimbus Fish Hatchery to Ca 16. Take Ca16 East to Plymouth for an extra 25 miles
Back to the South end of Folsom South Canal. At times there is water in a ditch you can ride through just South of Ca16, You need to lime over or under the gate at Sloughhouse Rd. There is more water to cycle through where the canal goes under Dear Creek, but when you get to where the channel goes under the Consumes River, you may have to swim. The river is about 120 feet wide, and the canal is underground for approximately 700 feet. There are about 450 feet of field between the river and the next section of the channel.
You should be able to go East on Ca16 for 4.5 miles, turn South on Dillard Rd for 3.8 miles and pick up the canal again but you cannot quite get to Twin Cities Rd.

Miners Ravine Trail

My first love trail!

Love this trail! Absolutely gorgeous and serene,

Miners Ravine Trail

My first love trail!

October, 2017 by cherlynortiz

I recently start experimenting with cycling and this is the very first trail I ventured out on. It's beautiful and as was my estimate of this trail, it is 7.5 miles long. We typically ride our bikes here at dusk. It has very few people then. We sorta race through the trail all the way to downtown Roseville to Harding Blvd, then turn around and go all the way back to Orvieto Drive. I haven't quite made it all the way to Sierra College or Miners Ravine side but I'm working on it. Last night we were there pretty late and we seen a coyote. He was glorious! We seen him but stayed our distance. This whole trail runs along a beautiful creek. The nature here is almost surreal. It even has Maudie Native American grinding stones. This trail is awesome. Come & explore!

Truckee River Legacy Trail

Breathtaking view & fun trail

August, 2017 by 41onesweetworld

Went biking with my 11 year old on 8.12.17, Saturday. We started at the trail head on the steep hill from the Truckee River Regional Park's parking lot. We rode a total of 8.36 miles downstream and back. The landscape, wildlife, countless bird species, river, and sky were a breath of fresh air for us. Segments of shady trees in between sunny spots to rest at as well as benches to sit on and take in the surrounding beauty. Bring lots of water and snacks. Highly recommended. #leaveonlyfootprints #packoutwhatyoupackin, #LoVEarth

Humbug-Willow Creek Trail

Great Running Trail!

August, 2017 by fonzoozal

I started on the trailhead by lake Natoma and ran out 4.5 miles and back. It's mostly asphalt, but there is usually a dirt path on the side. No bike traffic at all. You go under a couple bridges which I think is really cool! Definitely suggest running there and I'll run there again soon for sure.

Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues Trail

Keeps getting better

July, 2017 by melissa24

The trail is expanding; by fall 2017 it will be complete! Right now it takes you past the historic prison and you get to see great views of the lake (which has recovered nicely from previous years' droughts and is full and lovely).

I can't wait to try it again this fall once done and go back behind the City Hall over the wooden bridge and see views of the American River.
