Slate Mountain Trail is a 9.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Placerville, CA that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from May until November.
The directions that transferred to google maps didn't take me to a trail at all. The drive was gorgeous, but I didn't get to got for a hike.
Great trail!! Easy medium and hard!! Depending on what route you take. Very pretty views. Drive takes a while for you to start to really hit the heart of it. So make sure to fill up on gas before going. Take a buddy to double the fun.
