Park officials are asking the public to go slow along a heavily used American River Parkway trail between the city of Folsom and Folsom Lake during tree and brush removal.

California State Parks crews will be tidying up the trail between Negro Bar and Beals Point from Feb. 17 through early March.

During that time, crews will be removing trees and larger limbs that lean across the trail and cutting back brush along the bike trail. The project will increase the distance a rider or walker can see down the trail and make a wider trail for pedestrians and equestrians.

The trail will remain open during the work but there may be brief delays during the removal of big limbs.

“We understand that this work may result in a slight inconvenience for many of our park visitors,” said park Superintendent Rich Preston in a press release. “We ask for the public’s cooperation by slowing down when approaching the work areas.”

The California Conservation Corps will be helping state parks employees.
