Folsom opens the Johnny Cash Trail
The Johnny Cash trail in Folsom is now open! The newly finished trail honors one of the world’s most famous country musicians and his influence on the city of Folsom. The trail includes 1.25 miles of paved trail, an undercrossing beneath Prison Road at Natoma Street, and a beautiful 190-foot wooden arched bridge.
On October 14, the city celebrated the finished trail with a ribbon-cutting, a grand opening ceremony, timed runs, a community bike ride, and an outdoor festival in Folsom City Lions Park.
The new section of the Johnny Cash Trail will connect to the existing trail in Digger and Sharon Williams Rodeo Park, providing cyclists, runners, and walkers a convenient route to access Folsom’s Historic District and the extensive American River Parkway trail.
The Johnny Cash Trail will set the stage for a world-class public art experience to celebrate and honor one of the world’s most famous country musicians and his influence on Folsom. The project includes eight larger-than-life public art pieces and a three-acre park honoring the Man in Black.
