Overview

Little Round Top offers stunning views and a good workout, and for those of us who can't ski, a great way to get outdoors in the winter. It is a long ridge traverse that can get seriously windy so layer up.

Getting There

Get to the Meiss Meadow Sno-Park, .2 miles west of Carson Pass on the north side of Hwy 88. From the lot, head west (left) and wrap your way around through some neat looking trees and make your way up to the obvious saddle to the north. This is a popular XC ski and backpack route that continues on over the saddle. When you reach the top of the saddle, cut west (left) and head up the first of a series on small summits that eventually bring you to Little Round Top. Continue along the undulating ridgeline enjoying excellent views of Round Top and vicinity, and Lake Tahoe to the North.

Red Tape

Make sure to have a Sno-Park pass for the parking lot Nov. 1-May 30. You can pick one up at Kirkwood, a few miles down Hwy 88, or one of these placeshttp://ohv.parks.ca.gov/pages/1233/files/sno_park_vendor_list_011108.pdf.
