Tahoe Peaks series #6. This is a hike to the summit of Mt Rose, the third tallest peak in the Tahoe basin. Hike stats: 10 miles (round trip), elevation gain 1900', starting elevation 8800’. There should be lots of wildflowers, and great vistas of Reno and Tahoe. The hike will be moderately paced over a rocky trail with significant elevation gain. 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 cancels.
We will meet in the Sacramento area and carpool to the trail head. Leader will email meeting place info to RSVPs.
