“Part of the American River Bike Trail, this section is 1/2 of the paved loop around !Lake Natoma.”— Richard B.
Family Friendly An easy paved trail with many spots to stop and enjoy the view or have a picnic with the kids.
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.
