“A moderate run with plenty of views as you pass Donner Peak and cross Mt. Judah.”— Eric Ashley
From there, follow an an old jeep track that leads through a wet area that produces excellent wildflowers in the spring and early summer. Keep heading toward the saddle and the climb up the northeast face of Mt. Judah.
On the way up, enjoy the striking views of Mt. Rose, Truckee, Donner Lake, and Coldstream Canyon. The trail wanders along the crest of Mt. Judah, providing even better views of the surrounding peaks.
After the trail passes the crest, it descends gently to connect back with the Pacific Crest Trail just past Roller Pass.
