Description

This smooth paved standard bike path runs the length of the north side of Lake Natoma, from Nimbus Dam to Negro Bar Recreation Area/Old Folsom. There are a couple of mild climbs and many curves.

At either end of the trail, you can connect to the rest of the American River Bike Trail or make a loop with either the paved or dirt trail on the south (Hwy 50/Folsom Blvd) side of the lake. If you combine the north side pavement with the south side dirt you'll be riding the Lake Natoma Loop.
