  • Successful
  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • This was a private scoping trip. I'm just letting people know who might be considering hiking Mt. Rose in the next few days that the trail is in great shape. No snow or ice, but be ready for slick conditions if it does arrive - the upper rocky stretches can be hazardous. I went up and down the so-called steep route above Horse Camp, so I don't know of any problems on the loop. Last time I hiked the Rose 'lollipop loop' was August, and there were no issues.

    No snow on Rosie's head:


    A peek at Lake Cushman:


    Looked like a storm on the way:
