Only okay. The trail was a dirt road. But I saw many cool single tracks taking off that I am sure are worth doing. I just didn't want to get lost so I stuck with the boring app trail (road).

We will be back in spring! Don’t forget your goggles if you go in winter:) great hike for Thanksgiving Day, we brought snow shoes in with us. Great location, well marked, super wide trail :)

Well maintained trails but very poorly marked. I got lost several times. Maintenance workers helped me out and agreed that the summer trail markers are confusing. Lovely views over Tahoe Donner.

A nice easy walk, gives a different perspective than in winter. Fun.

Easy to find. Trails were nice -- amazing view and nice place to take a walk to.

great easy hike. went end of September. beautiful views. you walk past where the Donner party wintered. Makes you think

Stunning panoramic views almost throughout. Super quick and easy trail, great for kids or beginners. Easy to find and easy parking. Loved this little hike, will go back.

Nice flat trail. Partial shade, follow the blue dot. If you start in the parking lot of the Tahoe Donner cross country trail head, you round up to six miles+.

Walked with 3 kids (7, 6 and 3) 3 year old in ergo. Definitely dusty so plan on cleaning feet afterward! The view was worth the whining on the way up - the kids even agreed and were in much better spirits on the way back

Solid, mellow dirt running with only mild hills. 6am start and felt like I had the place to myself — the valley was gorgeous with the mist still hovering over the meadow. The main route around is a fire road, and there are several side single tracks for variety and exploration.

Easy trail with great overlook! Not much shade coverage so bring a hat and/or sunscreen. Plenty of parking with a port-o-potty and picnic area.

Loved the views on this easy walk! However, the rocky trail bothered our dogs paws and lack of much shade had them scrambling for each tree... Was only 80° out, but quite warm in the sun for them I guess! Would do again, but earlier in the morning and leave the pups at home!

Easy enough for my senior dog to join me. Beautiful views! Location of trail head is very accessible and the parking lot has some shade. Big bonus that other great trails cut off from this one.

Great trail with a beautiful overlook of Donner Lake!

Amazing view of Donner Lake!

Easy hike to a spectacular view of Donner Lake! Gradual incline through pretty wildflowers. Most of the trail was sun exposed, so a hat and sunblock are a good idea. Really great hike for kids. Ports potty available at the trailhead as well as doggie bags. Plenty of parking in the trailhead parking lot.

Nice hike. Lots of mountain bikers. The west end of the loop trail doesn't really exist, as the road is on private property. But Tahoe Donner created a trail that completes the loop. It cuts off about a mile from the full loop.

Love this loop!

beautiful views and an easy hike. don't forget the sunscreen.

Beautiful views. Well maintained trail. Late spring is the perfect season, not too hot. Most of the trail is exposed and the first part is a fire road, after the lookout point it goes to single track.

Easy trail up to a beautiful outlook of Donner Lake. My family took our two dogs and the absolutely loved it. It was a foggy day but still quite nice. Very easy to access if you live in Tahoe Donner. I could see myself using this as a running trail in the future

This was a Spontaneous hike but worth it for the views!

I go to this trail a few times a year and love it every time. My son and I went up today. It was snowy, but still a great hike with beautiful views. It's one of my favorites.

Still under snow the entire way, so ty oil longer than expected. Beautiful views. My dog (wee but with huge attitude beagle/terrier/daschund/mini heeler) struggled with the snow at times but mostly because she went off trail. Can't wait to do it again when the wildflowers are out.

Great hike, saw lots of families on the trail. Saw even more dogs. Beautiful view from the overlook.

Easy trail, good for kids

Pretty valley includes a 4 lane highway and some development, but no negroes.
