MT. JUDAH & DONNER PEAK HIKE, Tahoe National Forest

Overview: Stunning views await you on this hiking trail and snowshoe route in the Northern Sierras, which takes in two separate peaks in just 5.5 miles.

Elevation gain: 
(7100 - 8,243ft elevation) 1700ft cumulative elevation gain

NOTE: This hike is considered Moderate/Difficult due to the steepness, rugged terrain, elevation, and elevation gain.  The pace will be moderate with regroups and short rest stops. Don't let the mileage fool you, this hike is at HIGH elevation.

Please note that you are signing up for this hike voluntarily and at your own risk.  You are agreeing that the organizers of this hike are not responsible for your safety.  It is advised that you need to be able to keep up with the group.  If you choose to go ahead or stay behind you do so at your own liability.  If you plan to cut it short, I recommend you have a map with you. You need to know the trail and be able to get back on your own.

Please wear proper hiking shoes and bring layered clothing (including a rain coat), plenty of water (at least 2 liters), hiking poles, personal first aid kit, and high energy snacks/lunch.

The weather in the Sierras is very unpredictable.  It's likely to be warm/hot, but can be windy at the summit, so plan accordingly.

    Hi Everyone,
    I arrived in Truckee this morning to very smokey neighbor told me the air quality is fluctuating daily depending on the winds. If the air quality is this poor tomorrow the hike will be cancelled. I will keep you informed as the day goes on and the winds pick up. Keep your fingers crossed.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
