Browns Ravine South Shore Trail is a 13.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near El Dorado Hills, California that features a lake. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

I really enjoyed this trial! It was clearly marked with ribbons and white arrows on the ground and had markers that would tell you what mile you are on. There's never a dull moment on this trial as there are plenty of birds chirping, running streams to hop over and the trial has slight inclines at times. I wouldn't recommend any beginner mountain bikers on this trail. There is so many branches and rocks on this trail that can be dangerous.
Good trail allot of up and downs should be a medium trail no real good parking.
Pretty good. Couldn't find the rest of the trail though.
Very serene, scenic and peaceful. We try to do this trail as often as we can
Good out and back any time of the year. Make your hike as long as you like following the lake. Start at Brown's Ravine lower ramp parking lot or walk in from a side street off Green Valley Rd. Watch for Poison Oak in spring and summer. Unsanctioned mountain bikers are usually polite. Beautiful any time and close to town!
