Tahoe East Shore Trail

so beautiful!!!

July, 2021 by joan60

You will love this absolutely beautiful trail. Weekends are a bit busy with both walkers and bikes but still worth it. The trail runs along Lake Tahoe and its has stunning views plus the water colors are magnificent. I highly recommend this trail for a nice walk. You can also go into the Sand Harbor park at the south end and stop for a Bloody Mary or other refreshments at their concession stand

I love this trail! Clean with beautiful scenery. Porta potty throughout the trail. Sound of the River is calming.

El Dorado Trail

Diamond Springs to Shingle Springs

May, 2021 by mykgrant

Had my wife drop me off behind Walmart and took the ED trail for the first time to Shingle Springs. I hit record on my Strava app but didn't hit start until I was well into the trip. Darn. No stats this time.

Riding a FS MTB and it had rained about 2 days previously so the weeds weeds were growing in the sun. Super cool to see weeds almost cover the trail. What was left was just a line in the fox tails designating the trail in some spots hiding any rocky, rutted out surprises. There was also some mush and it made me wonder if I was really following the trail into deep water but I was committed.

Absolutely loved the ride and the trail but it was over too soon. Need to expand my use of the trail up and down.

Erica Greif Memorial Bikeway

Nice path for all levels!

May, 2021 by chelseahouston90

I rode this path with a friend recently (she’s experienced, I’m a beginner) and we both had a good time! Nicely paved, a few slight hills, and decent length.

Erica Greif Memorial Bikeway

Good for all levels!

May, 2021 by chelseahouston90

I just got a bike and rode this path with my cycling-experienced friend. We both had a good time, explored both directions when the path forked closer to Sparks, and appreciated how well the path was maintained. Fairly flat—a little more hilly on the way back (toward S. Reno), but great overall!

Sparks Boulevard Trail

Love this path

February, 2021 by allygan

This path is really conveniently located to a lot of homes along Sparks BLVD. It's short, but is a great connector to the Truckee River bike path. Also, so many ducks live along this path and they are just super fun to watch. It has a few places where the path dips down below the road level, and these can occasionally collect water. But if you're looking for a place to entertain your children with echoes, these underways are definitely the place to do it. The path is wide enough to accommodate traffic going both ways, which makes it great for walking or biking or bringing your dogs.

El Dorado Trail

2/3 awesome

December, 2020 by pinkyandgreg

I ride mountain bikes, and not full suspension...the trail from Folsom to Latrobe, or Latrobe to Folsom, is garbage, for me, on a bicycle. Maybe if I was on a horse, or a dirtbike, or on full squish mountain bike, it would be OK, but the section from Folsom to Latrobe is ugly and very bumpy.

From Latrobe to Shingle Springs, or Shingle Springs to Latrobe, this trail is a lot of fun. Keep an eye out for the single track switching sides of the railroad as it is very frustrating to be off trail. There is a huge difference between the single track and the "trail" along the tracks. Ride the single track. The intimidating uphills are short and very manageable once you get going up (or down) them.

From Shingle Springs to Placerville, or Placerville to Shingle Springs, the trail is good. Not great, but good. There are sections that are fantastic and sections that leave a bit to be desired. Some of the single track climbs are tough. Be prepared to walk some if you are not a very good mountain bike rider. Even then, I hit a few wet roots or leaves or rocks and the rear tire just gives out with moisture, cold and steepness. Once you get to cross the road by Walmart, the opportunity for dirt reduces. It is there, you just have to keep a constant eye out for it. And if you do not run tubeless, don't go off road between Placerville and Diamond Springs as there are a ton of thorns just waiting for your tires...

This 36 (72) mile trail has a lot of potential and it is fun to ride up and back from Folsom to Placerville and back. Great training and the elevation is just under 4000' total so it makes it possible to hold good speed. A little too much tarmac and getting battered for the last 5-7 miles into Folsom is no bueno.

I enjoy this trail. I actually start on alt Lake Tahoe Blvd And follow the South Lake Tahoe trail all the way to the end of this trail. There are many other side roads like fallen leaf campground.

Erica Greif Memorial Bikeway

A nice fall afternoon ride!

November, 2019 by pam.brandbuilders

Easy trail with wide open views. Well maintained for one small area that needs some goat head bushes trimmed. Nice benches at several points to take a break. No shade, except under one bridge, so be prepared if it’s summer. We ended up on several nice bike/walk paths in housing developments on the southern end that took us back to our motel off 580. Easy For families with kiddos.

El Dorado Trail

El Dorado Trail & Placerville Trail

July, 2019 by chris180

When you experience this trail you first need to realize it is actually about 37 miles long but is longer than that to Folsom or to Tahoe (Epic Trail System). That said, the El Dorado Trail is a "trifecta of trails" with rail, earthen trail and Class I bike path under construction. This is the goal of the entire corridor to the El Dorado County line BECAUSE it is the goal of the organization that manages it, the SPTC JPA.

The El Dorado Trail or Gem of the Western Sierras, is a rough, somewhat untamed trail testament to the folks who built it and many with legacy family members in the area. In fact, many with less than 75 years in the are do not know about the EDT. Come out and ride the rail now in Shingle Springs in the depot at Sam's Town Cyclery or rent bikes to ride the earthen trail. You can also ride the rail in El Dorado and soon they will have a Class I (ADA approved) bike path along with improved earthen trail.

The Placerville Trail (Missouri Flat to Camino) is great with some nice views and the tressle bridge over Weber Creek. However, watch out for cars and homeless in Placerville. Making way out of Placerville you can get to Camino with a little bit of a climb (estimate 600').

In the next few years projects will start to build the Class I trail next to the rail and hopefully we will see connects to Cameron Park, El Dorado Hills and Folsom.

Oh yeah, wildlife are plenty on the EDT having seen over the years many deer, fox, skunk and even a mountain lion!
