Description

Beeks Bight parking lot in the Granite Bay section on the west shore of Folsom Lake.

This is the only area of the Rec Area noteworthy for a concentration of tall enough rock of decent quality to make up a circuit. Some overgrown boulders might or might not clean up into nice lines in the future.

Getting There

Paid/Folsom Lake SRA annual member approach

Drive in the Granite Bay entrance of Folsom Lake SRA, paying the entrance fee there. Follow the signs to Beeks Bight parking lot. From the lot, walk north on a single track trail, and follow forks north then northeast for 5 or 10 minutes.

Free/foot/bike/horse approaches

There are several free public parking areas with approaches of a couple of miles.

Note that the old Twin Rock Road park and hike is now closed to - and excessively signed against - public parking.

This is the area in the Granite Bay Boat launching entrance. After entering through the front gate continue straight and you will see signs for beek bight. fallow the signs for approx. 3 miles and you will come to dead end parking lot, if you don't see the boulders from there, you need glasses!

It is possible to walk into this spot, via the horsetrails, from Twin Rocks road. From Douglas Blvd. take a left up Auburn-Folsom Rd. for roughly 2-3 miles, turn right onto Twin Rocks follow for another mile until a big left turn in the road with a large dirt pull-out on it's right side. Park and hike in from here generally taking the middle or level trail at any junctions. It is a nice trail for running also just watch your step! There is a good v2/3 problem on the frontside of boulder climbers right when facing the main boulder, and some good sit-start roof problems in the short cavey boulders just out of the parking lot. There is potential for more problems on the trail into Beeks if you are willing to do a lot a poison oak removal. Lastly, I don't want to be a jerk, but I have been going out there for 20 yrs and climbers were doing the same for years before that, so don't claim FA on the most obvious v1 right in the middle of everything.

  • BE ADVISED OF BATS IN THE AREA OF BEEKS BIGHT* I found the bats in a crag east of the main boulders across the dry lake bed. The boulders looked fun but I almost stuck my hand in a crack with a few bats in it.
