Folsom is home to an extensive trail system, with more than 45 miles of trails for walkers, runners and cyclists. As you enjoy Folsom’s multiuse trails this spring, the Folsom Police Department offers a few safety tips to remember before you head out.
Keep to the right side of the trail
Yield to pedestrians
Pass on the left side of oncoming pedestrians/joggers
Ride at a safe speed; single-file in congested conditions or in areas with reduced visibility
Keep to the left side of the trail (facing oncoming cyclists)
Watch for other trail users
Maintain single-file in congested conditions and in areas with reduced visibility
Residents are encouraged to join the Folsom Police Department’s Dog Walker Watch and help prevent crime on the trails. This special program trains residents who use trails and pathways regularly on how to spot and report suspicious activity.
