Why the Heck is Folsom Lake so Low?

Folsom lake level March 21 2017


On Facebook, here on, and all around town, people frequently remark that after all of the rain and snow we’ve had, Folsom Lake still looks like a puddle, and they wonder why.

They will either blame the Bureau of Land Management, the operators of the dam, saying ‘They’re incompetent!’, ‘They’re using an out-dated manual!’, or ‘It’s the Liberal politicians!’, ‘They want to send the water to LA!’


Salmon Falls Bridge Trail aka Darrington Trail

Salmon Falls Bridge Trail aka Darrington Trail in El Dorado Hills, CA

Salmon Falls Bridge Trail - El Dorado Hills

This week, we wanted to cover a trail that was a bit more advanced then our last post on the Falcon Crest Walking Trail around Folsom Lake. The Salmon Falls Bridge Trail, also less commonly known as Darrington Trail, is an amazing hiking, biking and walking trail with stunning views of Folsom Lake.

Salmon Falls Bridge Trail (Darrington Trail) is located just 5.8 miles down Salmon Falls Rd. from Green Valley and El Dorado Hills, Blvd. Once you cross over Salmon Falls Bridge, the entrance to the Darrington trail will be on your immediate left across the street from the lower parking lot.
