The sprawling Tahoe Donner subdivision and its 6,000-plus homes above Truckee is many things to lots of people. For some it is their home neighborhood; for others it’s where they rent a house for a few days in winter or summer. Locals and visitors all take advantage of the Tahoe Donner Association’s 7,000 acres and equally vast amenities available to homeowners as well as to the public. The association’s clubhouse, marina, tennis center and recreation center are for members only, but the public can experience Tahoe Donner for free via the vast and beautiful trail system or pay-to-play at top-notch offerings such as the campground and Tahoe Donner Bikeworks bike shop located at a trailhead and offering private lessons, guided rides for all levels and more. The Tahoe Donner Trail System features more than 60 miles of trails across 5,000 acres of epic Sierra Nevada terrain. It is the ultimate playground for hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers and equestrians. After all that exploring, Tahoe Donner has a variety of places to dine. The Lodge Restaurant & Pub has indoor and outdoor dining, and Alder Creek Cafe offers casual indoor and patio dining for the entire family. Also keep an eye open for events open to the public held at various times throughout the year.
