The Best Kept Secret in El Dorado County - The El Dorado Trail

Did you know that the railroad tracks from the Sacramento/El Dorado County border up to Camino are open for public use for walking and biking?  A great map can be seen here http://eldoradotrail.com/trail-map/ which shows that the 'natural' trail runs along the tracks from El Dorado Hills through Latrobe and Shingle Springs up to Placerville where it then becomes a class 1 (paved) trail.  The paved section which runs east beginning at Missouri Flat is highly used but I've been out exploring various unimproved sections and cannot believe that more people aren't out there doing the same.  It's a natural environment where you can see all kinds of wild life and native plants and flowers while getting some fresh air and exercise.  You can pick it up at almost any street crossing, assuming you can find a place to park.  Speaking of which, plans are underway by the county to provide parking and staging areas at strategic places along the tracks.  There are several organizations that have information posted including: http://www.trailsnow.org/index.htm and http://eldoradotrail.com/.  For you women that want to meet new friends, there's a Rail Trail Chicks group on Facebook where the 120 female-only members post walks and rides for members to come and enjoy.

So get out there and explore in your own backyard.  This resource rivals the Folsom to Sacramento bike trail in that it provides a free place to get out and enjoy an hour with friends or family.  The educational value alone is worth a look!
