Moogie737From Spooner Summit TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2017


#1 5-28-17 W/ Yadahzoe via the TRT for the first 2.5 miles. Then it was "find your way" because snow obscured the trail. Head north, young man! Set GPS waypoints. We found the peak after much up and down, the use of crampons for traction on the steeper snow slopes and following bear tracks for several yards at one point. Too bad that all of the communications towers and buildings have to be right at the summit. A nice summit register was protected by several cinder blocks but there was no pen or pencil in the jar with the book. What spectacular views on our bluebird day. We were almost 5 1/2 hours to the summit because of our losing the trail and having to route find. But it was enjoyable fun because of the pleasant weather. We'd like to take the TRT when there is no snow.

Date Climbed: Apr 30, 2016



Long snowshoe from Spooner Lake TH with Mason between storms. Snowed a few inches overnight & we saved Snow Valley Peak for evening in hopes of clearing views. Peak 8738 came first and was enshrouded. Views opened up in late afternoon, making Snow Valley Peak a grand, but wind chilled vista when we finally reached it after tagging far flung 8208 & 8205 to the northeast. Tagged Herlan & Marlette the next day with better views of Lake Tahoe and Marlette Lake.

Parked at Spooner Lake State Park ($10 self-pay now but you can park outside and ride in and pay $2 per bike.)

Biked North Canyon Road 4 miles to the locked gate, stashed bike and hiked a mile and a half to the peak. Great downhill ride on the way out.

Started across from Tahoe at the Chimney Beach parking area. I believe the trail is Marlette Creek Trail. Over the ridge down to the south end of Marlette Lake and then up the road to the summit. Some now left, windy as all hell, nice views of Tahoe.

one of the peaks i hike every year, usually the first and last climb of the season, due to snow coverage-first to melt, last to accumulate. on of my favorites.

Took just over one and a half hours to reach the summit via the TRT from Spooner Summit. Crystal clear skies, warm temperatures, and very little wind.

Hiked from Ash Canyon trailhead to Ash Canyon summit/ridge onward thru Lake Tahoe State Park thru Snow Valley and up to Snow Valley Peak. Very windy day and winds were torturous above 8500ft. Very nice hike took 6hrs 20 mins to complete 17 1/2 miles up and down. Saw mountain lion from about 400 yards and he/she bolted in a flash. Also saw 2 coyotes and 2 herds of deer. Great day.

Instead of having barbeque we hiked this peak. Nice trail, easy hike, great views from the last portion of the hike. We had some friends along who had never before hiked 12 miles a day in their lives. They were feeling proud. Well, it's not the first 12-mile day for me.

Hiked in from Spooner Summit on a cold and windy day. The summit was in the clouds so there was no view. Nice hike though.
