The paved trail along the north-ish side of Lake Natoma (below the Orangevale Bluffs) has been closed now for the past six months, due to multiple, large debris slides during this past winter’s record rains.

If you’ve been waiting with anticipation for the day you’ll once again be able run or ride your bike through here, expect to wait another several months.

Apparently, it won’t be as simple as running a front-end loader down there and scraping up the debris.


Parkway Closed Along Lake Natoma!

January 27, 2011 By: John Blue Category: Parkway Updates

Running around Lake Natoma is going to be tricky for a couple of weeks while the county installs retaining walls along the north side of the lake.

Managers at Folsom Lake State Recreation Area announced that the paved bike path along the north side of Lake Natoma will be temporarily closed due to construction activities along the trail from January 24-27 and January 31-February 3, 2011. The trail closure will be in effect on those days from 7:00 AM until 4:30 PM. The specific section of the trail to be closed is the portion of the trail along the Orangevale Bluffs, from the intersection of the Main Avenue access spur to Negro Bar.

It appears that the trail will be open during the weekend. Here is a map of the closures.

You can still run between Hazel Avenue and Beals Point by using the south side trail and crossing the  Historic Truss Bridge in Historic Folsom.
