Description

This multi-track trail is a ski trail in the winter and a popular running trail in the summer. It winds along the southern end of the Serene Lakes community in the Lodgepole/Fir forest of the Royal Gorge open space area on Donner Summit. The trail is part of a network of trails that provide access to the open space area. It can be traversed in both directions and is open to hiking, running and mountain biking in the summer and skiing in the winter. During the snowy months, it is usually groomed for both Nordic and skate skiing by the resort.

Flora & Fauna

The trail cuts through a Lodgepole/Fir forest and during the summer is populated by a large collection of Sierra wildflowers. The forest is the home to deer, ground squirrels, bobcat, martens and the occasional mountain lion. Rattlesnakes have been sighted very rarely on this trail.
