Northern California city unveils 'Johnny Cash Trail'

SACRAMENTO — The city of Folsom has completed the first section of the "Johnny Cash Trail" that will pay tribute to the country music icon and his 1968 album "At Folsom Prison."

City officials unveiled the first section of the 2.5-mile trail on Saturday — a pedestrian and bike bridge designed to echo Folsom State Prison's east gate guard towers, according to the Sacramento Bee (http://bit.ly/1rbBHsD).

The trail will traverse prison property and link to area trails.

The newspaper reports that the city is planning a $3 million fundraising drive to pay for a 2-acre park next to the bridge and art installations along the trail — including a 40-foot steel statue of Cash.
