Mt. Rose, located on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe, near Incline Village offers stunning views of the greater Tahoe area.

This challenging hike offers great views of the greater Tahoe area. The first part of the hike to the waterfall is relatively easy, but once you pass that, you'll be doing a decent climb to the summit. During the summer months, you'll want to get an early start as there can be a decent crowd heading up to the waterfall. Be sure to pack a jacket as it gets windy at the summit.

Plan for this hike to take 5-7 hours.
