Donner Lake & Pass

  • A Karen Brown Recommendation

Highway 80 climbs over Donner Pass and by Donner Lake, both named in honor of the group of settlers led by George Donner who in 1846 became snowbound while trying to cross the Sierra Nevada in late fall. Harsh conditions and lack of food took many lives and resulted in the survivors resorting to cannibalism.
