Carson City Highpoint Trip Report

Snow Valley Peak

A late start 3:45 pm. This time I would pay the price with the last two miles in darkness.

I took the Rim trail from Spooner Summit up to the top. Awesome views of the lake and the trail was beautiful -- too bad it was so hazy from the fires. On the way down, I opted to take the North Canyon. It was a little longer but well worth it. Just before reaching Spooner Lake I had to bust out the headlamp. The descent took 2.5 hours and I reached the car at 8:45 pm for a 5 hour round trip.

I only saw 2 people the entire hike, they were on horseback.
