Donner Lake house description

Great Donner lake location on the sunny side of the lake, just a short drive from downtown Truckee. Walk across the street to access public piers, beaches, and 3 miles of trails in Donner Memorial State Park. Boat docking available 5am-10pm.

Brilliant mountain bike trails can be accessed from the house. World famous rock climbing on Donner Pass, the legendary Pacific Crest Trail and the beautiful waterfalls of the royal gorge and coldstream canyon are available to the adventurous hiker. When you finish your adventure relax on one of several piers or beaches just out the front door.

One of the best locations you'll find.

          Car: Recommended

          Nestled in the middle of a mountain playground with mountain bike trails, rock climbing, river kayaking and hiking trails within minutes of the house. Ride from the house into Coldstream Canyon or up Donner Pass for great mountain and road biking. Hikers can access the world famous Pacific Crest Trail, Cold Stream Canyon, the remote waterfalls of the Royal Gorge of the American river or a dozen of mountain lakes in the area.

          Across the road from a great set of piers in beaches. You can dock your boat or watercraft on the piers from 5am to 10pm. The beach and piers get great southern exposure and lots of sun.

          Just a mile from several good markets and restaurants and 3 miles to historic downtown Truckee.
