The El Dorado Trail system is 35-miles of hiking, equestrian and biking trail in and around Placerville. The trail has grown over the years, with new additions now stretching from Camino to the El Dorado and Sacramento County line. Much of it is paved. Several access points or trailheads mean you can experience different parts of the trail depending on your schedule.
