Donner Summit, being the most important historical square mile in California and maybe the entire Western United States, and being an outdoors kind of place, has a lot of opportunities for historically based hiking or walking.
First, we should note that we have brochure called "Historic Hikes of Donner Summit" which you can find on our brochures page. You can also pick up copies at the DSHS at the blinking light in downtown Truckee, at the California Welcome Centers in Auburn and Truckee, and at the Summit Restaurant on Donner Summit.
Here we begin what may become a list of different hikes that have QR codes that you can scan with your smart phone to open web pages that explain the history of spot marked by the QR code.
Mt. Judah Loop Trail web page. The brochure with the QR codes is available on our brochures page or at the DSHS at the blinking light in downtown Soda Springs.
