The 2016 Folsom Trails Sprint Series is the most fun you'll have on a Thursday night! The FTS Series is a 10-week, points-based series designed to encourage friendly competition and the enjoyment of trail running, racing and walking. There are three, fun and challenging courses: Willow Hills Cross Country Course, Beals Point and Negro Bar State Parks trails. Each course distance is 5k (or pretty darn close). Enjoy the friendly, grass roots atmosphere and the fun, well-groomed, beautiful tree lined dirt trails.
Beals Point State Park
Entrance to Beals Point State Park is located on Auburn-Folsom Road, about 1 mile North of Folsom Lake Crossing.
If you park in the Beals Point State Park, there is a $10 park entrance fee per vehicle charge or you may purchase an annual California State Parks Poppy Pass park for $90 (a real bargain).
* See information about an annual Poppy Pass below. Remember that this fee is your donation to improving our state parks, including the trails we run on.
* Annual Poppy Pass information
Many trails are located within the California State Parks. If you do not have one, I highly recommend purchasing a Poppy Pass for $90/year (from date of purchase). California State Parks Pass info This pass is valid at 97 parks in the State of California where an entry fee is collected. You can usually purchase your park pass at most park pay stations, most any state park office, including the Gold Fields District Office, 7806 Folsom-Auburn Rd, Folsom and the Auburn Recreation Area office on Hwy 49 about 1/2 mile into the canyon from Auburn.
