It was still covered in snow. People were sledding down the mountain. We couldn't see the trail because snow nearly covered the sign. The snow was piled up to 6 feet in some places. Saw lots of deer tracks and even mountain lion prints.

This is a free park service/forest service maintained trail loop just below the Mt. Rose summit going toward Incline Village. The area is wonderful from wildflowers to snow. Stop by and enjoy.

Bring your water but mostly bring yourself to experience some fabulous views. You can walk sections of the trial or as our Sons the entire trial. It is breathtaking as well as calming. Words will not describe that feeling, that craving to see more. Enjoy...More
