The Salmon Falls 50K is a point-to-point ultra-distance trail race. The race begins at the Magnolia Ranch Trail Head near Coloma. The course will run the majority of the trails in the Cronan Ranch area before winding down to Folsom Point State Park at Folsom Lake. The estimated vertical gain for the event is 3500 feet of gain. Races are run rain or shine!
New in 2024!
