Southern Route - With Fresh Snow  Sucess!

Hiked to the summit again via the southern route from the end of South Meadows Parkway. Blue skies and fresh 4-6 inches of powder made it beautiful. Went up the dirt road near the power substation and power lines, then along the ridge to the top. Spotted some wild horses in the high valley that is southwest of the summit.

From Hidden Valley  Sucess!

Hiked an out and back with my wife from Hidden Valley Regional Park. About 5.0 miles round trip with about 1500 feet of gain. The bottom section is very steep, exceeding 30% in several sections. The middle section wraps around the mountain in a northeasterly direction, and is a pleasant single track. The trail disappears in the last section heading in a southerly direction over the ridge line to the summit, which is marked by a cairn. Descended via the same route. About 3 hours round trip (2 hours up, 1 hour down). We saw lots of horse dung, but unfortunately no wild horses at all. Great views of Reno!

Nice morning hike  Sucess!

Went from the paved parking lot listed as trail head #3. My mileage came to about 1.4 miles each way, I think this is mostly due to going straight up the hill as opposed to following the use trails around the side of the mountain. Either way it was a 1400'+ gain so it wasn't necessarily the most gentle path. Took an hour up and about 45 minutes back down. Grabbed a pair of Geocaches while I was up there too.

Close to Town  Sucess!

Took a quick hike here one afternoon. Excellent views of the Sierra draped in clouds across the Truckee Meadows.

Steep!  Sucess!

Was with the Sierra Club on this one, so have no idea how we actually got to the trailhead (the page description seems a little different). Incredibly steep in some places (and a little hard to navigate on the descent). RT was 3 hrs for us; great workout.

Geocache  Sucess!

There was a geocache at the summit. Kind of interesting. It was a nice day - 59 degrees. The hike is steep.
