South West trail head. Map reference Mount Rose NV, 7.5 minute USGS.
The first 2 miles is on your basic jeep road, where people hike or mountain bike. The trail turns to the right entering into a meadow this is the start of the Mount Rose Wilderness area. You will the cross Galena Creek and the trail starts to get mildly steeper as you head towards the saddle where it will turn right again, this is where the trail really gets steep as you are appraoching the summit.
Always take a wind breaker it can get quit windy at time on the peak, and the approach.
