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.

I LOVE this hike. Although it's 10+ miles, it does not feel terrible. The ground is not nearly as rough as some other peaks (Mt. Tallac, for example), and the vegetation reaches higher up in elevation as well.

Great hike during the week but too many hikers on the weekend. Fairly easy until the final hike up Mt Rose proper. Take a jacket-the top can get chilly. Great hike and views if the fog is off the top and no smoke is in the area. My pedometer said 10.7 round trip two times in a row.

Very nice to have a trail which is easy to follow. Be prepared for very little net elevation gain during the first 2.5 miles.

My 10-year-old daughter and I conquered this hike today. It was beautiful. The snow is not bad, you just have to go a bit slow in a few places.

Snow the entire way, on the way back was starting to become muddy slush from all the people who had started up after us and rising temperatures. Unable to see anything at summit due to fog/ clouds. Very cold and windy and much more challenging in the snow. . Took us 7 hours to complete. Apple watch (with gps) said 10.72 miles.

My garmin watch says 12 miles round trip. We hike this last Saturday. The trail was covered by the snow all the way to summit. It was Freezing cold, windy,cloudy and foggy,when we reached the summit. Definitely a great and memorable experienced.
