PCT: Donner Pass to Squaw Valley Professional Review and Guide
"This section of the Pacific Crest Trail lives up to its name, offering some of the finest views in the Tahoe area from a several-mile stretch of trail that stays on or near the actual crest of the range. This hike is very challenging for the average hiker, especially when considering the plunge into and the climb out of the North Fork American River’s canyon, but experienced hikers in good condition will find the well-maintained PCT a rewarding challenge. Backpackers can break the trip into two days by camping along tributaries of North Fork, or by making arrangements to stay in the Sierra Club’s Benson Hut."
