Hiked this about a month ago with my dog and I really liked the trail. Traffic thins out by the waterfall since most people go to mount rose. There is not a lot of shade though so do this one early,especially if you bring your dog.

It was great. No sign of snow anywhere. Great signage along the trail. I really liked that you get cell coverage the entire way. Especially if you are hiking alone and may need some help.
I am so glad I brought my poles cause you need them!

There is still plenty of snow. We made it about 3/4 before the snow was too much and we turned back. Still a lovely hike.

Started at the Mt Rose Summit parking lot and climbed to Mt Houghton first (10,500 ft) before heading another 2 miles towards Relay Peak. Amazing 360 degree views!!!

Took the road route in and up to the top and came out through Galena Creek and the Mt. Rose Trail. Good views in all directions. Hiked out with a couple of guys from New Brunswick who had just finished up the Western States 100...seriously hardcore...

This is a rough hike. Total out and back is 10.5 miles, with 5,020 feet are climbing elevation. Starting at 8,400 Feet the peak is 10,300, so about 3000 feet of vertical, but the view at the top is monumental. The scenery on the trail is spectacular. Carry plenty on water and plan lunch at the top.
