Day Hike (2B) Red Lake Peak

  • May 28, 2013 · 7:30 AM

Tahoe Peaks series #2. We’ll open the 2013 summer series with a mellow 10,000 foot peak. Red Lake Peak is across the road (Hwy 88) from Round Top and offers the same fine views. Hike stats: 6 miles (round trip), elevation gain 1500', starting elevation 8500’. The hike will be moderately paced over a rocky trail with significant elevation gain. About half of this hike is off-trail. Hikers must be in very good to excellent condition. Bring the essentials, including sturdy boots, water, snacks, lunch, layered clothing due to changeable weather conditions, and $$ for carpool drivers. No minors. No dogs. Rain/snow cancels.


We will meet in the Sacramento area and carpool to the trail head. Leader will email meeting place info to RSVPs.

    The weather tried to intimidate us, but we ignored the threat and had a great day. Very different conditions, a little cold, but that was more than made up for by the fantastic ice coated trees and bushes up near the summit. It was a pleasure to lead such a robust group of hikers. :-)

    Hi Mike,did Grouse lakes three weeks ago,is only 7.500ft and we had a ton of snow up there.My guess is at this elevation we might still have some to walk on.

      There will be some snow fields, but they should be small. Red Lake Peak is above the tree line, so it loses it's snow early. Just keep fingers crossed that we don't get any more. :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
