Great hike to Hawk's Peak with gorgeous views of Eur Valley, & TD. Today, I saw thousands of butterflies in their chrysalis about to emerge. Highly suggest making the trek up to Hawk's Peak via Andromeda to see them. Up and back was about 6 miles or so.

The Far Side trail on the north facing side is still covered by up to 5-6' of snow. The Donner trail on the south facing side does go out 2 miles to the west where it meets the Far Side. Views along Donner trail are great, facing SSW to Castle Peak and mtns on the south side of I80

Excellent for dogs and kids! Saw few bike riders and joggers. A little marshy in some areas. Beautiful scenery and nice creek.

These are actually the trails associated with the Tahoe Donner subdivision, they are well maintained and available to the public as well as long as you park in the parking lots. My parents live here and in the past I have used the to snowshoe, but this summer we walked them pretty extensively, they are great for on trail hiking. My 60 year old parents who are active, but not hikers, can keep up on all the trails, but get a good workout on the steeper ones, there are numerous Vista points including a great one over Donner Lake only one mile out. If you're feeling more adventurous these trail hook up to the system in Euer Valley.
