  • The El Dorado Nature Center is a great place to just come out, enjoy what nature has to offer. You have the option to do a 1 mile trail or 2 mile trail. Not that many switchbacks, the trails are...

  • Its been some time since I've been there but it was beautiful, very memorable. Lots of ground to cover so bring walking shoes and if you have little ones a stroller or be prepared to stop a lot or be willing to carry. It was peaceful. There is parking but you gotta pay which is t bad. I guess an alternative would be to park in the no charge parking and walk there. The views are breathtaking. Am planning on going back.
  • This park has been all time favorite for me for 2-3 miles walk. Trail closes at 5PM so make sure you enter the park by 4PM. Restroom is available and enough parking spots.
