There are many opportunities for hiking in El Dorado State Park. The park is currently home to six hiking trails, one bike trail, and one equestrian trail. Each trail offers its own scenic views, and the trails provide varying levels of difficulty, offering something for casual hikers and bikers to those seeking a more challenging experience. The City's Bike Path also offers a 6.3 mile concrete path that begins at East Park in downtown El Dorado and ends in the Walnut River camping area just below the El Dorado Lake dam.
Most of the trails are open year round, to showcase what each of the different seasons has to offer.
There is also a newly expanded ADA Trail, along with a path beside the trout stream--including several wheelchair accessible piers--for those who are wheelchair bound.
(If accessing trails in the state park, vehicle permits apply.)
