Description: With the recent showers of late March, this may be an ideal time to find lots of water in the cascades and falls in the upper reaches of Donner Canyon. Wildflowers should be abundant. Our route will take us up lower Back Canyon, crossing over to Donner Canyon, eventually swinging around the Falls Trail at the base of North Peak. We’ll return via a series of trails that wend their way through a mixture of chaparral, pine/oak woodland and green meadows. Allow 4.5 hours for this 7 mile loop with a total elevation gain of 1500 feet. Steady relaxed pace with a snack break. Be prepared for mud and poison oak. Heavy rain cancels.
