Great Walking, Running and Horse Trail around Folsom Lake in El Dorado Hills, CA off Salmon Falls Road

This post is the first of many to come in a series of walking, jogging, biking, hiking and horse trails around Folsom Lake. We wanted to start with a beginner level trail (Falcon Crest/ Monte Vista) that nearly any age level can navigate. Lets dive right in!

Falcon Crest Walking Trail is located just 3.1 miles down Salmon Falls Rd. from Green Valley and El Dorado Hills, Blvd. Falcon Crest (aka: Monte Vista) is a walking trail and horse trail that is excellent for all ages. From 4 years old and up, this is a great local walking trail near the Folsom/ El Dorado Hills area to take the family. There are also many local horse stables and tours that you can go on, and you can request that they take you here.
