Forest Service Restrictions for the Back Country at Tahoe
At 10,776 feet, Mount Rose is the third highest mountain in the Tahoe Basin. The six-mile (one-way) hike offers views of both Washoe Valley and the surrounding Tahoe Basin. Snow stays on the peaks into the summer months, so late June is the best time to start hiking this trail.

Take the Mt. Rose Highway (State Route 431) to the trail head, which is a half-mile from the summit and next to a building and a gate. Follow this dirt road, which turns into a footpath after 2.5 miles. An elevation gain of 2,620 feet makes this a challenge, but keep going, because the panoramic views from the top are definitely worth the work.

The summit at Mt. Rose has a great new starting area for your hike up to Mt. Rose and the Tahoe Rim Trail. Check out the new rest rooms.
