As a fairly new Truckee local (3 years now) and prior weekender, my favorite time of year has to be the Fall! Ah, the shoulder season! Whether you hike, bike, run or just want to get away and touch some dirt, the trails and the Fall colors are beautiful right now. The trails around Donner Summit are some of my favorites! Whether you want to explore the historic train tunnels, take a walk along the PCT, or just venture up for some epic views, Donner Summit is the place to explore. Great trails begin at Lake Mary at Sugar Bowl, Boreal Ridge, Royal Gorge, Negro Canyon, or The Summit Trail at the bottom of Old Hwy 40. Here are a few of my favorite pictures….need I say more! Now get out there and go explore!
