Sterling Pointe to Rattlesnake Bar Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Follow a remote stretch of Folsom Lake’s shoreline to a beachhead with lovely lake views. The route is part of the Pioneer Express Trail, used by equestrians for endurance rides, but those on foot endure nothing more strenuous than a few mellow ups and downs.
The hike from Sterling Pointe to Rattlesnake Bar begins in a ritzy neighborhood, where the manicured backyards of expensive homes back up to the serenity of an arm of Folsom Lake. Following this route, hikers can tap into the appeal of the area—priceless views across the blue-green water, fragrant oak woodland, a sense of well-being enhanced by exercise—and it won’t cost them a penny."
