Connecting nature and recreation for all to enjoy
Folsom's recreational trail system provides more than 34 miles of beautiful paved trails for cyclists, walkers and joggers. Trail access points are located within most of the city's neighborhoods and near businesses and retail centers. Many of the trails meander through Folsom's dedicated open space corridors, providing a journey through greenbelts, wooded areas with native oaks and vegetation, wildlife habitats, and along creeks and seasonal streams. We encourage all trail users to be good stewards of the trails, remembering to leave no trace: pick up after dogs, refrain from littering and to preserve the terrain and vegetation by remaining on the developed trails.
The installation of the city's first bike/pedestrian overcrossing -- the East Bidwell Street Overcrossing -- was completed in late fall of 2010. This bridge continues the enhancement of the trail system by spanning East Bidwell Street to connect two major segments of the trail.
Many residents consider the trail system to be one of Folsom's most cherished assets, and the trails map produced by the Parks & Recreation department is one of the most frequently requested publications.
