Day Hike - Mount Rose

Let's commemorate Cinco de Mayo on a jaunt to this popular peak!

  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 4.5 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,800 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 4,300 ft
  • Pace: 1.5 - 2.0, varies

Morning at trailhead, details will be provided to participants. No parking pass needed.

There will be snow on the upper slopes. Micro-spikes will most likely be needed and trekking poles are strongly encouraged. We will go up via the left side, but conditions and group desire will determine whether we do the loop.
