9:00AM-Noon: 26 mile group ride. The El Dorado Trail is a smoothly paved converted rail trail that extends from the town of El Dorado just west of the town of Placerville in the historic Gold Country of California up to the town of Camino. The ride is moderately strenuous with a steady elevation gain of 1,500 feet over 13 miles but with a thrilling downhill glide coming home. The route is scenic with plentiful shade and a couple of train tunnels. Bring plenty of water and snacks. All riders are expected to be self sufficient. There will be stops in Placerville (Historic Hangtown) and along the way for pictures and water/snack breaks.
