Mountain Biking El Dorado Trail

****   Add a review
#232 of 997 mountain bike trails in California
#2,845 in the world

Single Track down abandoned RR tracks, which turns into some paved multiuser trail in Placerville. Stay on Singletrack as much as possible when it runs beside paved. 32.6 miles (from placerville to Folsom) in length perhaps a few more with the new addition to hwy 49.

    37 miles in total or 21 from Shingle Springs to Folsom. Trail follows the Southern Pacific rail with mostly single track not far from the track. Technical ability is not too challenging depending on your pace. Dirt bike park is in the future for Shingle Springs and bike shop Sam's Town Cyclery is located on the trail with free parking.

    Trail conditions were great today. A great way to spend some time with 14 friends. A big thanks to Fatrac for adopting it and for the trail maintenance they have done.

    Kind of a boring trail, but if you are out and about with the family it is great. I mainly hop on and off of it as I go between some more technical singletrack.

    I wouldn't advise riding just after a rain. It gets pretty muddy and it's like red clay, it can bog you down. I had to wash my bike twice.
