Glacier Meadow Loop Professional Reviews and Guides
"This easily accessible, short out-and-back jaunt makes a perfect quick getaway. Starting from a bustling Interstate 80 rest area, hikers take a trip through geologic history on the Pacific Crest Trail overlooking Donner Lake. The trail crosses Donner Pass Road 3.6 miles from the freeway, which makes for a nice turnaround. To shorten the 7-mile hike, set up a shuttle vehicle in the Sugar Bowl Academy parking lot at the turnaround."
