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.
