El Dorado Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The El Dorado Trail, like so many rail-trails in California and elsewhere, is a route in transition. About half of the trail is in place, a nice path that wanders through the oak woodlands east of downtown Placerville that serves, for the most part, local residents. But plans are afoot to extend the route. Surface: Asphalt (with a parallel dirt path) and ballast."
