This is not a real trail and I would caution anyone attempting it to come prepared. The trail formally ends at the pond and then it looks like someone a very long time ago tried to carve out a trail to the peak of Mt. Rose along the ridge. You’re just YOLOing it essentially; there’s no path to follow. Probably fun for a serious adventurer but definitely not for entry level hikers. Lots of scree, tricky terrain, and obstacles that make this borderline impossible to do

So far...favorite hike in the Tahoe-Reno network of trails.

Breathtaking views once you get past 7500 feet.

Would highly recommend.
