Mt. Rose Trail
Medium Difficulty Hike to Mt. Rose Summit

Hiking

The 10.6 mile round-trip Mt. Rose Trail starts at 8,900’ and climbs to 10,788’ at the summit where you will be treated to some amazing views. This smooth, well maintained trail is part of the 165 mile Tahoe Rim Trail.

At about the halfway point to the summit, a waterfall formed by Galena Creek, cascades to a meadow area and provides water for flowers and other vegetation. The waterfall may be used as a turn-around for some as the trail from here becomes steeper as you enter the Mt. Rose Wilderness.

One of the incentives to continue is that the view becomes more and more spectacular as it opens up to a 360 degree view for miles, from Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada to the south to the Truckee Meadows and beyond to the north.

There is no water beyond the waterfall and meadow. Even on a nice day it will be a lot cooler on Mt. Rose than down in Reno. Bring clothing for a crisp day in the mountains and be prepared for sudden changes in weather.

Alternate routes, lower on the mountain and in more open areas, may be substituted in case it has been a good skiing (high snow pack) year.
