California officials unveil ‘Johnny Cash Trail’

October 5, 2014

SACRAMENTO, California (AP) — 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 (4-kilometer) 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 (0.8-hectare) park next to the bridge and art installations along the trail — including a 40-foot (12-meter) steel statue of Cash.

The Sacramento Bee newspaper says Cash’s daughter, Rosanne Cash, was expected to attend Saturday’s ceremony.
