Hike Details: Elevation – not much Location – Rattlesnake Road, Newcastle - Folsom Lake Mileage – 4-5 miles Time – 2 hours Route – We parked at the Avery Pond Trailhead inside Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, head North/Northeast along the trail that roughly follows the water's edge Weather – lovely This is more like a stroll, than a hike, but still a nice little workout with some lovely spring scenery with lots of pretty wildflowers. You can follow the trail along the lake for however long you want to walk and then just turn around. Hard to get lost on this one! This is Avery's Pond -- a nice little spot to stop for a picnic, there's one picnic table here. Lots of cute little turtles if you look closely.
