FYI, there's someone, presumably homeless, living in a tent below the bridge at the Lake Natoma Waterfront and Trail Access.
There is also human waste and toilet paper on the trail itself. Not next to the trail. Not hidden in the brush off the trail, but directly ON the trail, toilet paper and all, in several spots.
I don't know if the same person is responsible, but they are in very close proximity.
My wife goes on walks on our trails without me, and we just eliminated that spot for safety reasons.
I've called Folsom PD, State Parks and HART of Folsom. If the guy needs help, maybe they'll get hims some. In the mean time, beware.
Please don't get political and blame the left or right.
