Access Notes Details
CRAGS and the Access Fund are beginning new projects to help improve access to Donner Summit. You can communicate access issues directly at CRAGS’ Donner Summit page norcalcrags.org/crags/donner/. In 2014, the Truckee Donner Land Trust and the Access Fund jointly launched the Save Donner Climbing campaign. The following year, it purchased formerly private land for public conservation and access, which includes the Black Wall and other nearby cliffs.
Getting ThereFrom the trailhead parking area, continue on a rough dirt road (high-clearance vehicle advised if not walking this section, but not strictly necessary), taking your first left past the gate.
From here, stay on the main dirt road, passing at least one left-hand turn (do not turn here) and park at an obvious pullout about 0.6 miles in.
At this point, you can use a high-clearance vehicle to drive in about 100 yards more if you want to; either way, take a rutted-out (often muddy) road left from the parking pullout to a large meadow.
Skirt along the left side of the meadow, following an obvious trail west, across a creek and up and down a little and you'll start finding boulders. Stay on the trail at all times, the trail definitely leads to the boulders. It's about 15-20 minutes to the Under Queen Boulders.
