The 3.5-mile section of the Pacific Crest Trail between Donner Summit (Interstate 80) and Donner Pass (Old Highway 40) isn’t the most stupendous stretch of the famous trail, but hikers looking for a nice picnic spot with decent views won’t be disappointed with the scenery. Wildflowers lift the spirits of passersby until mid-season, and rock-climbers will find plenty of challenging bouldering routes all summer long.
