The Tahoe Donner Trail System is the ultimate playground for hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers and equestrians with more than 60 miles of trails and fire access service roads spanning over 5,000 acres. With thousands of users, horses and dogs included, it is important that we all work together and observe basic trail rules and etiquette to keep the backcountry safe and enjoyable for everyone.
