Description

PCT Cliff, Bat Walls, and other adjacent cliffs described in Josh Horniak's current North Tahoe guide book.

Getting There

Since Boreal connects to both directions of Interstate 80, it's a simpler place to start on first time visitors. Turn to the south side of the freeway, where the main ski resort is. drive on Bunny Hill Drive past this to the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) Connector trailhead parking. If your lot is full, you can park legally for free and use the bathrooms, drinking water taps and vending machines at the Donner Summit Rest Areas on both sides of the divided highway.
