This one is a bit difficult to explain, but if you're familiar with the Granite Bay area, you'll know it. The trail behind Cavitt Jr. High leads to the bike trail. Once you're at the bike trail, you can go right down towards Beal's Point or left toward Granite Bay and then on to the horse stables. It's beautiful any time of the year, but especially in the fall. Great views of Folsom Lake too!

I love Miner's Ravine Trail, it runs from Sierra College Blvd (between Olympus and Secret Ravine) all the way up to Harding near Lead Hill. We've walked it, ridden bikes, run, all are enjoyable. It does get a little buggy at dusk, so if you're biking keep your mouth closed, and if you are walking bring the OFF.
In a year things could be completely different... or they could be the same... it's up to you!
Folks in the area should know about Hidden Falls Regional Park between Lincoln and Auburn (especially when the weather gets cooler) - miles and miles of well-marked trails: http://www.placer.ca.gov/departments/facil ity/parks/hiddenfalls - from wheelchair-accessible to tougher hikes.

Well it is over near Fair Oaks but Bannister Park is a nice walk by the American River.

Almost fall season and that means we can get outside and enjoy the beautiful area we all call home. Do you have a hiking trail (or neighborhood trail) that you think we should all learn about? Please share it here. And let us know if you try a trail you heard about here and what you thought of it. I am always looking for a scenic hikes to take my camera out.
Thank you to CHRISGETTINGFIT for giving me the idea for this forum.
