Brown’s Ravine

23 miles from Bell Tower. Easy 17 miles, one way.                                          MAP

This trail extends from the Sweetwater trail another 17 miles to Folsom Dam. It is closed to bikes excepting the section from Dyke 8 to Brown’s Ravine (which was built for bikes). Outlaw riders still use it anyway, which creates great frustration for the equestrians.

Directions: Shame goes to El Dorado County for not permitting better access to this trail. Luxury homes line Salmon Falls Road for miles limiting public access to Folsom Lake. Get on at the Sweetwater Creek pay lot, Browns Ravine, or Dyke 8, or find the many sneak in places along its route (New York Creek for one).
