Mount Rose


Day Hike - Mount Rose

Let's have a go at this steep, popular trail before the deep snow arrives!

  • Moderate/Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 6.4 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,500 ft
  • Pace: 1.5 mph 1200 ft/hr

9:45 am at the Trailhead, for a 10 am start. More details will be sent to participants

The pace will be steady but not too fast; however, you must be in good condition. There might be some snow on the upper slope, bring micro-spikes. The trail becomes rocky, steep, and slick in places, so I strongly encourage poles. Boots with good traction are needed. No parking pass required.
