Signal Peak Panorama
Photo By Jeff Bagley

  • Title: Signal Peak Panorama
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Donner Pass
  • Nearest Town: Truckee
  • Brief Directions: The trail to Signal Peak starts from a offroad vehicle parking lot near Cisco Grove, located right off I-80 between Sacramento and Reno. The trail is steep and very rocky. Elevation gain is about 1700 feet in about 3 miles. This photo was shot just south of the summit of Signal Peak.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Signal Peak was used as a Fire Lookout for the Southern Pacifc Railroad for nearly 60 years. This location (about 10-15 miles west of Donner Pass, CA) was chosen because fire lookouts could watch nearly 20 miles of track from one spot. Around 1934 a panorama was shot from Signal Peak. Upon seeing this old panorama in the book "Donner Pass" by John Signor, I wanted to shoot a updated version of the panorama. This photo, shot June 16, 2012 is the result.

    Thank you Alena, appreciate your comments as always! This is one of my favorite places, with such amazing geology. Someone also pointed out the repeating triangular shapes, which is probably also...
