Description

This dirt road provides hikers with access to the DLRT (Donner Lake Rim Trail) Castle Valley to Donner Ridge from the Tahoe Donner/Glacier Way Trailhead Parking Area. There's a gentle incline from the parking area to the trail, but this wide route is unremarkable aside from that.

West end of Donner Lake from Glacier Way Trail @ Johnson Canyon Overlook. Really nice hike with an early payoff-GREAT views of Donner Summit, Castle Peak & surrounding mountains. Share the trail w/lots of mountain bikers!
