The sign at the trailhead says it's open year round, but back in late fall it was closed for deer hunting. Watch for signs at the trailhead.

Description

Teter Nature Trail is a short trail through one of the wooded areas around El Dorado Lake. It was designed as a hiking trail, so the trip down the hill is fairly steep. It would benefit from a small reroute to build a switchback.

The trail takes you down through woods and it has a natural spring mid way through. I recommend riding it clockwise, but there is no set direction for the trail. A Kansas State Parks Vehicle Pass is required for parking in the lot at the trailhead. A nice restroom was built fall 2015 at the trailhead.

The trail to the woods is not exactly doubletrack, but is maintained by a tractor.

The trail winds through some old hardwood variety trees.

The climb back out has some switchback to it, but then the top section is straight up.

The descent into the woods and then back out of the woods is designed for hiking, therefore it's a bit steep for a bike. Experienced riders would enjoy the challenge, but the loop is quite short.
