Utility Corridor Trail
Updated as of 11/1/23
The planned trail is approximately 5,400 linear feet in length and will begin on the west side of El Dorado Hills Boulevard, directly across from Stephen Harris Park, where it will intersect the heavily used County Class I path running alongside El Dorado Hills Boulevard. The trail will extend west through the corridor, cross Hensley Circle and continue down through treed open space with a pedestrian bridge covering a seasonal stream and continue on to Beatty Drive.
Many El Dorado Hills residents already walk and bike this informal trail. It will become the District’s second recognized trail after the New York Creek Trail.
Trail improvements will include clearing, grubbing, grading and realignment of the trail to reduce steepness and improve safety, resurfacing portions of the existing utility road/trail and top with base rock, add and restore native soil trail, a 50 foot pedestrian/bike bridge with abutments over a stream channel with timber retaining wall, tree removal, rock slope protection, drainage, site stabilization, trail barriers (log fencing/post and cable fencing) to "direct" pedestrians and bikers, and two formalized road crossings (striping) with necessary signage at Hensley Circle East and West.

DISTRICT Trail Map
Over the past year, District staff have been working on finalizing the District’s first Trail Map and Pocket Guide. The efforts have included gathering GIS data, working with area HOAs and residents to identify trails and pathways within the District’s Boundary and showing those connections that lead into the surrounding areas. The map is a foldable one- page guide intended to help the El Dorado Hills Community know about all the public routes. Next phases of the project include creation of an online interactive version.
