Length: 11.8 mi • Est. 5 h 55 m
Conquer the summit of Mt Rose and enjoy the waterfalls, alpine lakes and great Lake Tahoe views. Mt. Rose may be the second tallest peak in Tahoe basin and prominent feature of the northern Lake Tahoe skyline, but despite its 2,300ft elevation gain the journey to the peak is best described as pleasant rather than challenging.

Subalpine meadow teeming with flowers and wildlife... ideal for a quick, gentle hike with the entire family. The paths that meander around Tahoe Meadows are covered with footprints and signs of mammals, the air is filled with songbirds and raptors, and the ground is alive with masses of wildflowers and trees. This hike has no particular destination and it's not going to get you anywhere other than familiar with nature. A natural history field guide would be a welcome companion on this walk because you will have a chance to use it often. Accessibility: The trail is mostly dirt or gravel with some boardwalk bridges. The boardwalk sections are at least four feet wide but the dirt/gravel trails can be uneven and narrower, less than three feet wide in some places. The estimated average grade is 4% and the max grade is 9% at about 0.8 miles when going clockwise. This point has been marked on the map with a waypoint. Wheelchair or stroller users may need assistance in the steep or uneven sections.Show more
