Mt Rose Summit Trail

Lake Tahoe has some beautiful trails, this is certainly in the top 5. The trail starts at the summit of Mt Rose, giant parking lot – you can’t miss it. Get there early unless crowds are your deal. Keep in mind, there’s snow most of the year, dress and prepare appropriately.

This is a heavily travelled trail so be prepared to say hello a 100 times before you get to the waterfall.

Good lord this is a great hike! Mark and I set out early, 5:30am early, to get out and back before the sun really started beating down. We managed to get to the waterfall right as the sun was rising. The final 3rd of the trail is tough, uphill. Coming down, for old bodies, seemed to be more difficult.

Enjoy the trail, Lake Tahoe has a ton more to try!
