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.

is not hard if you hike often..

Just a wonderful, super scenic hike. You can make it any length you need.
Great sandwiches at the Cafe at the bottom. We took them to go and had lunch at Sand Harbor. Perfect!

A lot of snow from the meadow but good down to Price lake witch we didn't reach..bush whacking .Got to the outlet and then back.Good day and our dog loved it.

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.

Rated moderate only for the incline. Easily walked up while in a sling 3 weeks after rotator cuff surgery. Views are awesome. The stop and turn around is really not a destination. You just turn around at 2.4 or anywhere you choose.
There is no parking behind the cafe as of now. You have to park in side of hwy then begin your walk up and past the cafe. The trail won’t start for about a quarter of a mile or a little more.

Great hike, it’s been a while since I have hiked so it took me a bit, but loved the spots to stop and take pictures, then great food at the end.

Amazing views! And this is the perfect weather to do the hike!

Absolutely beautiful!

Really lovely hike, especially if you’re looking for something not too far from Reno. The views are beautiful and the hike isn’t too hard. Really stunning rocks to climb and scramble on and also get a great view.

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.

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!

Great views!!! Upper half of the hike was beautiful but stopped in an uneventful way. Had to hike off trail a bit to get to see the highest view of the lake!

Great hike, gorgeous views. Fairly trafficked

Fantastic views! There's still some snow near the top of the trail, but nothing hiking boots can't handle.

Parking is at the cafe at the bottom of the trail. The views for this trail were pretty amazing and the trail is mostly sand and very well maintained. A lot of dogs off leash today. The elevation gain at the beginning of the hike is pretty significant, but the side trail leading to an overlook was a good place to enjoy the view! There was also some snow at the end of the hike before the turnaround. I brought micro spikes, but managed fine in my boots.

Beautiful hike! You can cut through to take a quick peek of the monkey rock and the beautiful 270 degree view of the lake. Shortcut is a bit steep but well worth it.

Late but we did this hike Thanksgiving Day and it was such a beautiful escape for the morning. My Pup loves to see snow so having some patches up at the top of the hike was perfect for him!

Love trail and views of Lake Tahoe.
Didn’t like the three dog owners that didn’t have their dog on leases.

Gets your heart pumping. Took us one hour to do the 2.4 miles one way up. The way down took approx 35 min. There is a $1 fee for hikers paid via the honor system. Saw a little more doggie doo that I’d expect as Tahoe trails are usually very clean. Trash can at the end was overflowing. Overall a nice hike. I’d do it again.

good views of lake
