Tips for Safely Enjoying Folsom Lakes and Trails

Posted on: May 2, 2020

Among the amazing amenities that make Folsom a great place to live, are miles of trails.

From the paved American River Parkway and Johnny Cash trails to the dirt paths around Folsom Lake, exploring these trails rewards visitors with natural beauty, scenic overlooks, historic sites, and bridges over creeks and ravines.

Some trails are flat and easily accessible, while others require a bit of a hike.

The trails typically see more activity after the winter rains subside, but were getting even more use since the state designated outdoor exercise as an ‘essential’ activity, during the ‘stay home’ order.

As we gradually get back to some sort of normalcy, I expect that outdoor activity may see an overall increase, as people want to get out and enjoy life again, while attempting to stay away from crowded indoor spaces.

Journalist and Folsom Resident Christina Mendonsa

Cristina Mendonsa

When veteran journalist and Folsom resident Cristina Mendonsa left News10 in June,  many of us wondered about her next move.  Would she go to another station? Another career? Another town?

We caught up with Cristina today, and she said that although she’s currently interviewing in other media markets, she is happily producing a new series on Folsom, because, “I love this community and have raised a family here.”

So, while we’ve still got her around, we can look forward to installments of Cristina’s new venture with the Greater Folsom Partnership called, ‘Folsom Focus’.

Available to watch online and as a podcast, Folsom Focus is a new hyper-local video series offering an upbeat and unbiased look at the present and future of Folsom.

Her first installment is about the completion of the Johnny Cash trail, opening this weekend.
