1. Where was THE TRAIL shot?

THE TRAIL was shot in the Lake Tahoe area, near Donner Pass. The filming locations were the same harsh landscapes where the ill-fated Donner Party found themselves stranded in the 1840s.

2. What was the inspiration for creating THE TRAIL?

Historically, wilderness survival films have been centered around male characters. (Examples include: Castaway, 127 Hours, Jeremiah Johnson, The Grey, etc.) THE TRAIL seeks to fortify the survival genre by re-imagining the scenarios from a female perspective, with a female lead.
