Trail shared by Miguel Vieira

This trail explores a series of waterfalls in the upper reaches of Donner Canyon.

Description

This narrow, rugged trail forms part of a loop around the headwaters of Donner Creek. From Cardinet Oaks Road, hike south across a grassy hillside, climbing gradually toward the first waterfall. From there, continue west and then descend to another waterfall. The trail heads north before ending at a junction with the Middle Trail.

The waterfalls on this trail are best after a series of good winter rains. They might be dry in the summer.
