Explore the most popular no dogs trails in Donner Memorial State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

We did this trail 8/11/17 and enjoyed it a lot. The creek crossing was quite boggy and wet - trail was mostly washed out. And the top of the trail (that middle 0.5 mile stretch) was NOT marked, and NOT maintained. Luckily there was a good GPS signal on AT&T in that area, so we used that and our trail finding skills to make our way going counterclockwise on the loop. Not many other hikers, and lots of mountain bikers early in the day. I give it a 4 star rating because of the trail maintenance issues.

This is a nice, short walk at Donner. There was nothing too spectacular about it, but the creek was pretty nice. There was an interpretive guide for the trail which explained the various plants and animals in this area.

I would have preferred the hike around Donner Lake but we didn't have much daylight left.
