An incredibly beautiful hike! The wildflowers are blooming, waterfall flowing, and snow is gone. The first section of the hike to the waterfalls is very easy! The second section is quite challenging. A lot of elevation gain with steep hills. I recommend hiking poles. There are sections with loose rock and dirt. Well worth it when you get to the top! Give yourself time to acclimate to the high elevation. And btw the bathrooms at the parking are closed!

Fragrant! The wild flowers on the trail are in bloom and smells amazing! Take the hikers only track to the right when facing the sign. It's the trail that would lead directly to the waterfalls. Then, it gets more arduous from there because of the elevation! If you're not worried about the altitude, then by all means...."Charge" the mountain!

Starts off nice and easy stroll for about 3 miles then you hit the awesome waterfall! After that is all up hill from there. me and my wife are just getting into hiking and it was by far the most challenging hike we have done so far but well worth it for the view of Truckee, Reno, Sparks, Carson City and of course Lake Tahoe. It took us about 5 hours at a decent walking pace. We stopped at the waterfall for about 10 mins and 30 mins at the summit. Lots of flowers along the way, a few creeks to skip across and even ran into a hungry marmot and chipmunks that greeted up at the summit. Weather was about 75 all day and only a little windy towards the summit. Defiantly bring lots of water, hiking shoes and a stick or poles if you have them. Enjoy!

The views are breathtaking (as is the elevation gain). As mentioned before, it's heavily used by mountain bikers.
On the way back, we decided to take the Tahoe Rim Trail to BP (Diamond Peak - 8,540 feet) and then the Incline Flume Trail (it will add an extra 9 miles to the hike, but it's totally worthwhile, with unique views of Washoe Lake.

A beautiful early morning start from the Mt Rose Summit parking lot. A mild walk to the Galena Falls. The water was running pretty fast and the wild flower were in full bloom. Looks like the corn silk still have a while. The last mile seems to be the longest mile. It’s windy, dusty, and 10,000 feet. The views all the way up are breathtaking.

I hiked to the summit and as a new hiker, this was challenging for me. The view was absolutely gorgeous at the top but if you are new to hiking, you are in for an extremely rewarding but challenging hike.

Walked the 2.5 miles from the trail head to the waterfall and meadow. Wildflowers were in bloom and there is a lovely meadow area above the falls to have a picnic lunch. A very nice hike. We will do the additional 3 mile hike to the Mt. Rose summit on another day. One complaint: On (arguably) the busiest day of the year, the restroom at the trail head was closed without explanation, and no porta-potties were provided.

I've been wanting to make it to the top of this summit for quiet some time. During the winter months a slope before the saddle seemed avalanche prone and I was unable to cross with snowshoes. I'm so glad that I went at this time of year. There are so many small wildflowers from the start of the trail to the very top. Very worthwhile!

Great Trail with amazing views! Dog friendly!

Trail is well maintained and well marked. Snow cover today was minimal. Windy at the summit, bring layers. Scenic, moderate hike with great views for most of the hike. Wildflowers were in bloom, too. Did in 4.5 hrs total with family. Would definitely do this hike again!!

Great trail, awesome reward with a great view of Lake Tahoe at the top.

Yesterday was my first hike of the year at this altitude. Just wanted to let everyone know that I completed the Galena Falls loop. While there is still snow fields to cross it is passable. No post holing. I strongly suggest taking trekking poles for safety and make sure you have deep lugs on your shoes. Enjoy!

Started off at sunrise which was perfect since there is still a ton of snow on the trail. Early morning kept the snow packed and easy to walk on. Unfortunately, as it got warmer, the snow started to melt and it was a slushy, muddy mess on the way back. High winds at the top of the summit, but incredible views throughout the entire hike. Breathtaking views from the top of the summit made the tough hike back worth it. Will do again, preferably with less snow on the trail maybe August/September.

Hiked from the top of Mt. Rose pass parking lot at 9am. I am very familiar with the area and know the trail at this time is hard to follow as it’s all snow after about 1 mile in. So I decided to pack my skis and follow the trail up Mt. Tamarack and ski down the hourglass bowl to the waterfall and resume the trail to the summit. This hike is much more difficult in the melting snow. The trail often disappears. Postholing was over my knees at times. Made it to the summit and didn’t see one other person out there the entire day. Then skied back down Mt. Rose and postholed following the original trail all the way back to the lot. Helps to take some hiking poles, boots and some knee high gators. Be prepared for a good workout.

Great trail and fairly easy hike. Though there are a couple slightly steep areas. I did the hike on 5/28/18 and about 1/2 is still snow covered and the snow is getting soft so you do sink in a few spots and I them spots I found it to be about knee deep or a little more.

Great trails, lovely scenic views. If you look carefully, you can spot pieces of the old flumes.

Mistake. Didn’t do this hike (first-time AllTrails app user...).
We did go to the trailhead but the parking lot was closed and there was too much snow. So turned around and did the Tahoe Rim, Tunnel Creek Road trail which was fantastic!

elevation gets very high but beautiful hike!!

Lots of snow to make snowshoeing fun! Lots of tracks to find the way to the top of Tamarack Peak. Pretty views.

First time out with snow shoes. Didn't make it to the top as trail was cut into steep ravine and snowed over completely. Still had a blast and was pretty.

great hike

Take the upper Trail to the top. Lower Trail is a dirt road.

It was still a bit snowy and slippery when I went in mid July so be prepared

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.

Great hike, gets pretty cold in the shade and especially at the summit with all the wind. Recommend something to cover face towards the summit.
