Distance - Trail Ratings: 5k/13k - 3D
Description: This is a high altitude hike in the High Sierra, starting at 7200 feet. While it is a challenging hike, it has great rewards in views and wildflowers. The most prolific and colorful wildflowers are seen in June and July. The 5k is a moderate grade on the way to historic Donner Pass. Both distances are on well-maintained trails, but the D trail rating is well-earned. The 13k includes moderate and steep grades, unshaded areas, and some switchbacks. It is well worth the mountain and valley scenery you experience. In this wilderness area, carry water, food, and a jacket. Wear hiking boots, sunscreen and a hat. A walking stick is recommended. Restrooms are available only at the trailhead. Dogs are permitted on leash with clean-up.
