Length: 3.6 mi • Est. 1 h 40 m
Effectively 2 slot canyons connected by a mixture of roads and trails. The beginning and end of the hike are a steep gravel hills but other than that it’s very doable. Make sure at the fork you go left, this allows you to step down through the steepest sections of canyon rather than climb up them!Show more

One of the best hikes on the Reno side of Mt. Rose. 75% heavily wooded, great shade. Sound of rushing water for 90% of the hike. Both Whites Creek and Thomas creek run year round even in drought conditions. Great views of Carson Valley, Washoe Lake and Mt. Rose Wilderness.Show more

Length: 26.2 mi • Est. Multi-day
HIGHLIGHTS Passes under highest peak in the Tahoe Basin; hidden gem Star Lake and exceptional trout fishing. BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF THE CARSON VALLEY AND HIDDEN GEM STAR LAKE Between Kingsbury Grade South and Big Meadow, the trail follows the spine of the Carson Range from sun-drenched meadows to cool pine forests and windswept mountain passes. Starting at Kingsbury Grade the trail climbs through a dense forest of large red firs and white pines, majestic survivors of the Comstock logging era. Further south, open ridges and rocky outcrops showcase breathtaking views of the Carson Valley. Hemlock-ringed Star Lake offers inviting campsites and a nice fishing spot for brown trout. This secluded lake nestles at the feet of three of the highest mountain peaks in the Tahoe Basin, Freel Peak, Jobs Sister and Jobs Peak. The more rugged central portion of the segment weaves through monumental old growth junipers and across granite passes with stunning vistas of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra. From here the TRT descends gently south to the Big Meadow trai lhead through forests and past small meadows dotted with flowers in the spring and summer and outlined with the golden shimmer of aspen leaves in the fall. Two miles before the end one can take a 0.6 mi shortcut to Grass Lake, an alternate trail head.Show more

Length: 25.4 mi • Est. Multi-day
HIGHLIGHTS Christopher’s Loop (the most photographed section of the TRT) and Marlette Lake View. Between Tahoe Meadows (8740′) and Spooner Summit (7150′), the TRT roams high above sparkling Lake Tahoe and Marlette Lakes, through sun-warmed conifer stands, and across steep, flower-strewn slopes. This segment is celebrated for its magnificent views, stretching across Lake Tahoe and the high Sierra and past the jagged ranges of the Great Basin. The route is rich in historical reminders, skirting lakes and flumes built to supply water to distant miners on the Comstock. It traverses both dense forests that sprang up after clear-cutting a century ago, and ancient red fir stands spared the ax by their remoteness. Between the lush grasses of Tahoe Meadows and Twin Lakes, the trail winds through rolling, wooded terrain. Breaks in the trees showcase grand vistas of the Tahoe Basin and Washoe Valley. The steeper, often open interior of the segment travels through Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park including possible side trips to North Canyon Campground and Marlette Lake. A TRT spur leads to Christopher’s Loop and a glorious cliff perch that seems to float above Lake Tahoe’s translucent shallows and Sand Harbor at the trail’s most photographed spot. The trail segment reaches its highest point as it threads between the bare rock of Snow Valley Peak (9214′) and shimmering aspen groves that turn North Canyon to gold each fall. Near Spooner Summit, the trail slips back into the pines, but still offers occasional panoramic lake and valley views.Show more
