Dyke 8 - TRAIL

Dyke 8 - Trail, Folsom, California

Approximately 8 miles in and 8 miles out. Lots of rollers, great views of the lake. Perfect ride to do after a rain as most of the soil is granite and quickly absorbs to water. Some tec. areas with little hits, nice creek crossings. Horses always have the right away, however they are rarely seen on this trail. You will encounter a lot of hikers on the weekends, but during the week there is little activity. Makes for a bitching night ride.

patchouli   Cross Country Rider [Feb 04, 2008]

I thought this trail was dope. Not too much work and it was hella fun. It rides right along the lake which is really beautiful. If your a pro then this would be a great work out. If your just a joe rider then I think this trail should be in your list of rides. The only thing that annoyed me was that you have to pay 3 bucks to park. I didn't do it. hehehe! It's worth it though. Um, what else. It's a little muddy right now but I like it alot. I'm glad we are getting lots of rain this year. It makes the riding alot more interesting. Oh, there is also a couple of creeks that youll pass. Those are nice as well. Go check it out. What have you got to loose:)

Get to Greenback. That will turn into Riley. Take a left on Natoma. Take a left at Green Valley, i think, and at the next light, take a left and go up the gravel road. Park and the trail head is completely obvious.

ricero   Weekend Warrior [Aug 15, 2004]

Great training trail for riders new to the sport or for a warm-up in the Spring. Nothing too dificult but a couple of hills will test your climbing skills.

Customer Service

Start either at the boat ramp or at the Sacramento/El Dorado county line on Blue Ravine. You should'nt go past Browns Ravine since it is closed to bikes for now and we should respect this if we're ever going to open it up.

pipeline   Downhiller [Oct 16, 2003]

This trail is great to ride at night. the gates will be locked, park accross the street in the housing track. Ride to browns ravine and continue on as far as your lights and legs will take you. This trail will take you all the way to salmon falls, pops you out rite at the parking lot at the base of the bridge.

Customer Service

once you hit browns ravine, get on the pavement to the left and pck up the single track on the right

The Ogre   [Apr 22, 2003]

This is a beginner trail, not intermediate. Small rolling hills, mostly wide singletrack with very little technical terrain. Bring your kids along and relax.

Customer Service

Out and back, I don't remember any turns. It's been a while but I don't think you can ride 16 miles out there anymore.
