About Us

The trails of this historic area off of Old Hwy 40 on Donner Summit follow clear creeks and look directly down on Donner Lake. Only non-motorized vehicles are allowed on the trails that follow old trade routes and wander past ponds.

Map kiosks and trail markers are available at the parking area, which is 400 ft. past the winter closure gate on Old Hwy 40.
