Sterling Pointe Equestrian Staging Area is part of Placer County Parks. There is ample space for horse trailers, and the equestrian staging area is available free‐of‐charge.
Sterling Pointe Equestrian Staging Area provides key access for the Pioneer Express Trail within Folsom Lake State Recreation Area.

In addition to equestrians, Sterling Pointe is also for hikers, Scout troops, and families with an interest in natural sciences (botany, mammals, and bird‐watching). For public safety reasons, mountain bicycles and motorcycles are not allowed in either the county park or the adjacent Folsom Lake State Recreation Area.
