Located in the east of California, the Eldorado National Forest bends around the southwestern shore of Lake Tahoe and encompasses 615,037 acres of land. It features two Wilderness Areas, Desolation and Mokelumne, and the latter is shared with the Stanislaus and the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forests.
Hiking in the Eldorado is a trip among stunning alpine scenery, dense forests, lush meadows, and cerulean blue lakes. Along with the splendid views, like Shot Rock Vista and Silver Lake Overlook, the Forest’s trails will introduce you to the rich history of the region - consider taking the Union Valley Bike Trail or the Eldorado section of the Pony Express National Historic Trail.
There is something for everyone - hiking, horseback riding, scenic driving, bicycling, climbing, fishing, boating, skiing, and many more activities await travelers in the Eldorado National Forest.
