Review: 37 miles in total or 21 from Shingle Springs to Folsom. Trail follows the Southern Pacific rail with mostly single track not far from the track. Technical ability is not too challenging depending on your pace. Dirt bike park is in the future for Shingle Springs and bike shop Sam's Town Cyclery is located on the trail with free parking.

Review: Trail conditions were great today. A great way to spend some time with 14 friends. A big thanks to Fatrac for adopting it and for the trail maintenance they have done.

Review: Kind of a boring trail, but if you are out and about with the family it is great. I mainly hop on and off of it as I go between some more technical singletrack.

Review: I wouldn't advise riding just after a rain. It gets pretty muddy and it's like red clay, it can bog you down. I had to wash my bike twice.
