Mount Rose

Mt. Rose is the second tallest peak in the Tahoe basin

10 miles round trip
Elevation gain 2,100 ft from 8,900 - 10,776 ft

The drive to the trailhead from Roseville is about two hours.

Directions to Trailhead (about a 2 hr drive from Roseville):

Take I-80 towards Reno
Take exit 188B for CA-89/​CA-267 toward Sierraville/​Lake Tahoe
Turn right onto highway 267 (towards Kings Beach on Lake Tahoe)
When you reach a "T" at Kings Beach, turn left onto Highway 28
You'll cross into Nevada, pass Incline Village, and then turn left onto NV-431 /​Mt Rose Hwy
Take this 7.8 mi and park in the large trailhead parking lot on the left.

Reimburse your driver ~$4/hr driven, so about $16

    Beautiful hike. Well worth the little bit of struggle I had close to the top. I need to do more of these peak hikes and not spread them so far apart (once a year is not good enough!). This was the highest elevation for me, so far. Thanks Shannon. You're the best!

    Beautiful hike! The views from the top were amazing! There were many really nice people along the trail too. TJ's Roadhouse is one of my favorite places for dinner too. Thanks for a great day!

    Thanks Shannon. Mt Rose has everything: beautiful views and wildflowers, good mix of shade & sun, waterfall rest area, gradual slope that rewards with plenty of elevation, and lots of nice people.
