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.

Wish there was more snow, but enjoyed my first snowshoeing experience.

We hiked the Summit Lake trail off of Donner Pass. Parking is available at the Pacific Crest Trail parking lot. Start from there going first east, then turning north you go under Interstate 80 via two tunnels. The change in elevation is a few hundred feet, and the vistas once you rise above the highway level, are stunning. Summit Lake is beautiful with large granite boulders to lay on while watching your dog swim and fetch. The water is warm enough in August for a human swim, as well.
