Frog Lake

Truckee Donner Land Trust’s Frog Lake Backcountry Huts offer a new overnight backcountry experience with comfortable accommodations in truly rugged, wild terrain. Set at 7,600 feet, Frog Lake sits on a lateral granite moraine, surrounded by late-seral red fir and Jeffrey pine. There are a few ways to reach the huts. Due to bad weather and the proximity of Alder Creek to our homes, we opted to skin in from the Alder Creek Adventure Center - we also have XC ski passes at Tahoe Donner (req'd during ski season). This is a six mile walk with roughly 1,300 feet of elevation gain.
