  • Beautiful view and cool history. Do yourself a favor and make the stop… it’s worth it! It was easy to find and parking was limited, but we didn’t have problems getting a spot.

  • A really scenic drive route. The donner lake has its own viewpoint which is signposted up the road. Such a beautiful place. The history makes it more interesting - be sure to look up the donner party....  more

  • Was beautiful but the snow really slowed us down. Would have given it 5 stars but we ran out of supplies and had to eat a kid.
  • The views here are stunning and the drive on donner pass road is fantastic. September gives a great blend of green and snow. Fully worth a drive.
