Washoe County High Point Trip Report

Mount Rose (10,776 ft)

Date: September 14, 1997
Author: Andy Martin

We tried to a dirt road up from Lakeview at Lake Tahoe but it was gated, so we headed off to Mount Rose, where the access road shown on all our trusty maps was gated right at pavement. This meant an extra 4 miles of hiking, not a welcome surprise.

The day was windy and cloudy, with the summit intermittently ducking into the clouds. We made good time (for us) to the windy summit, and did not tarry long there. A Sierra Club group was heading up as we descended, so we had more fellow hikers on this trail than any others on the trip.
