Tahoe Donner has 60+ miles of trails and fire service roads, covering approximately 3,474 acres of epic, wild terrain. Many species of animals can be seen here, including quail, grouse, squirrels, rabbits, marmots, beavers, deer, mountain lions and black bear. Hikers, bikers and equestrians cherish this incredible natural resource.



Please be respectful and avoid using trails in wet conditions. Walking, running or riding on muddy trails causes damage. Additionally, traveling off-trail to avoid mud and water can cause erosion.

Remember to maintain a six-foot social distance when outdoors and follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and California Department of Public Health protocols.


Please keep your dogs on a leash when walking in public amenities and trails near private residences. Pick up all dog waste and either dispose in the nearest trash can or take with you.


The trails are busier than ever this summer. Please do your part to be a team player:

  • Follow pack in/pack out protocols
  • Reduce your speed on trails
  • Share trails with ALL user groups
  • Yield to uphill traffic
  • Stay out of wetland meadows
  • Obey all trail closures and designated parking areas
