Description

From El Molino Drive, the unpaved Donner Canyon Road follows Donner Creek past Regency Drive, and then climbs gradually through grasslands and oaks. A little over a mile beyond Regency Drive, the trail climbs more steeply into chaparral before ending at the junction between Cardinet Oaks Road and Meridian Ridge Fire Road.
