pretty. But seems to be more popular with the mountain bikers.
Trail can be confusing at times, as there are numerous junctions with other, old use trails. Summit lake is nice destination for a picnic.

Trailhead is well marked off donner lake road. Follow metal stenciled signs to donner rim trail.
