This is a mountain biking trail only, not a hiking trail. Park on River Road then enter the forest. Head west on the logging road. There are nice views of eastern side of Donner Lake from the top of the trail.Show more

The term squaw is considered universally offensive by Indigenous groups in America due to its use for hundreds of years in a derogatory context. Indigenous activists have continued to work both locally and in more general educational efforts, to rename the locations across North America that contain the slur, as well as to eliminate the slur from the lexicon in general.
