The City of Eldorado Bicycle and Walking Path is an excellent example of trails as linear parks. The City of Eldorado and the Eldorado Garden Study Club both work to keep the landscaped trailway and its flower gardens splendidly maintained and beautiful. There is an Avenue of Honor with plaques, engraved stones and a small grove of trees paying tribute to local veterans. Trailside there is an old railroad signal light and a concrete train platform with its vintage light posts.
The trail is built over a roadbed of the old L&N (Louisville and Nashville) Railroad which had its station near where the public library stands today. Near Railroad Street (downtown), the Eldorado Trail directly intersects the Tunnel Hill State Trail coming from Harrisburg and points beyond. Just south of their intersection still stands the old Union Station which once serviced both lines. You can't recognize the old station, as it's been added to and built around over the years.
This rail-trail is entirely flat with a concrete surface except for the last 0.5 mile in the north, where it leaves the linear park of the city to travel through a narrow woods on crushed rock.
Parking is available on-street in downtown Eldorado. From the trail intersection, take the Tunnel Hill State Trail west to 4th Street, where parking is plentiful.
