Eldorado National Forest is a U.S. National Forest located in the central Sierra Nevada mountain range, in eastern California. Most of the forest (72.8%) lies in El Dorado County. In descending order of land area the others counties are: Amador, Alpine, and Placer counties in California; and Douglas County in Nevada with 78 acres (320,000 m2). The forest is bordered on the north by the Tahoe National Forest, on the east by the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, on the southeast by the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, and to the south by the Stanislaus National Forest.
Eldorado National Forest headquarters are located in Placerville, California. There are local ranger district offices in Camino, Georgetown, Pioneer, and Pollock Pines.
In the D2WYM Snippets episode, "Trek Reenactment 2015", several youth go on a pioneer trek in the area around Tragedy Spring, just south of Kyburz, in Eldorado National Forest. Alec Viera, Brody Rasmussen, Travis Neal, Nolan Blair, Jeff Reed, and Regan Curtis are asked to do a reenactment, where they'd walk the opposite direction and meet up with the youth along the trail. They'd pretend to be missionaries, and teach them a bit. They get ferried to the camp at where the youth would camp that night, and walk along the trail. They meet up with the youth about half way, teach them, and walk the rest of the way back to the car.
