The City of Folsom has an extensive system of Class I bike / pedestrian trails, with 45 miles developed and ready to enjoy. Grant funding totaling $16 million has covered the majority of the trail construction costs. The trails are located primarily along Humbug Creek and Willow Creek corridor. Collectively this part of the trail system is referred to as the Humbug-Willow Creek Trail (HBWC). Other significant trails within the system including the Folsom Rail Trail (along Folsom Boulevard), the Folsom Lake Trail (with connections to the Johnny Cash Trail and the American River Trail), and the Oak Parkway Trail (between Blue Ravine Road and E. Natoma Street).
The Folsom City Council approved two changes to the Folsom Municipal Code (FMC) Ordinance related to vehicles permitted on the Class I bike trails within the City of Folsom responsibility (does not include the Lake Natoma Trail or Folsom Lake Trail which are within California State Parks area of responsibility). FMC Section 10.26 regulating the use of Electric Personal Assistive Mobile Devices (EPMADs) was deleted as EPMADs are effectively regulated by the California Vehicle Code (CVC) Section 313(a). FMC Section 10.40 pertaining to use of Electric Assist Mobility Devices on Class I Bike Trails (e-assist bicycles, scooters, and EPMADs (Segway™).
The new Ordinance may be found here: FMC Section 10.40 pertaining to use of Electric Assist Mobility Devices.
