Slog of a snowshoe in less than ideal conditions. But wonderful view and great company.
Tahoe Rim Trail...
A fun day of snowshoeing - Up the TRT starting on Hwy 267, up to Martis Peak and then over to the COHP and the short hop up to Baldy. Round trip was about 13.5 miles. TR is HERE.
Hike this one to grab the Placer County Highpoint. I also hiked to Rifle, Rose and Rose Know Peaks. Nice day to get 4 summits.
Started at the TRT TH at Hwy 267, hiked up to the Placer COHP, then to Mt. Baldy and over to Rose Knob, then back down the TRT.
Total time 6:37, 18.15 miles from TRT Trail Head - West Baldy - Mt. Baldy - Rose Knob - TRT Trail Head. Perfect weather, a beautiful day!
Did the 'Kings Beach Route' from Sand Hill Flat, up to Baldy summit, then down to the Placer County Highpoint. Finally got to it several years late. Great day out above the beautiful lake.
Started at the Mount Rose TH and hit all the regulars on this segment of the TRT: Relay Peak, Rose Knob Peak, Rifle Peak and Mount Baldy. Great day.
The mountain does not look like much from afar, but the views from the top still make the hike worthwhile. Also hit the Placer County Highpoint, Rose Knob, Rose Knob Peak, and Peak 9773.
Found a TH off Red Cedar Road just past the Biltmore Hotel about a mile. Went to Baldy, Rifle, Rose Knob then Rose Knob Peak. Clear blue skies.
Not much to it from the Tahoe Rim Trail. Great views and a nice resting place.
Drove the truck up the dirt road to the Tahoe Rim Trail from 267. Hiked to the west ridge to reach Placer County's Highpoint, then a quick extension to Mount Baldy.
