Description

With narrow rolling singletrack along Folsom Lake, this trail is often used for those looking to add some distance to their Salmon Falls Ride (up road across bridge on left about 1/2 mile from North Parking area). The trail is narrow with a couple rock gardens, and the hills are short and not very steep. The trail crosses rocky creek bottoms a couple of times.

Most riders start from the fire road parking and do an out (some to Salmon Falls) and back. There's MUCH poison ivy along trail and if you go off trail you'll be in it! Follow the fire road down and follow signs for Sweetwater Trail - it's easy to stay on track.

Several turns are off slope and not banked, and it's easy to end up in the bushes or the lake. Rock gardens are short but fun. The north parking lot has a bathroom just off trail.
