Big Granite Trail, California

Can anyone help me find a 5-20 mile trail that starts in Granite Bay, maybe around Folsom lake? Says Lori

The total elevation difference for Big Granite Trail is 3,896 feet which is higher than average. Of course, this is an overnight backcountry walk, 2.5 days normally, so better have big a backpack to fit all the stuff you need. Being 18.4 miles long; it's considered a longer hike. Some parts of this wilderness hiking trail are much higher up than other parts of the wilderness hiking trail which of course means you need to be prepared for different conditions on different parts of the wilderness hiking trail. This hiking trail sometimes gets very dry, so make sure you check current conditions and fire restrictions with local forest authorities before you head out. This is a long hiking trail, so don't forget to pack enough supplies. This is a one trailhead wilderness trail, so you're looking at an in and out backcountry trek.
