The Lost Trail Half Marathon starts at Granite Beach along the shore of Folsom Lake. The course heads south toward Beals Point past the Activity Center and along a paved section. The first aid station is just past mile one and that’s when the course follows the Pioneer Express Trail between Granite Bay and Beals Point. The course follows the lake and then makes a loop near Dyke 4 and returns past the horse stables and Cavitt Stallman Middle School at the end off the loop. The course will head up to the top of Mooney Ridge on the return to Granite Bay. The course passes Granite Bay and heads north to the upper middle trail which winds its way through beautiful oak and pine forests on its way to Beeks Bight and Doton’s Point. After running around Doton’s Point and crossing Doton’s Bay the course follows the lower middle trail before finishing back at Granite Beach. Half Marathon Map
