Mount Rose Wilderness

Eric's Mount Rose Gallery
A relative newcomer to the ranks of wilderness properties, Congress established the Mount Rose Wilderness in 1989. Taking up 31,000 acres, the Mount Rose preserve occupies high desert lands of the Carson Range, and the more famous Lake Tahoe area. More than 35 miles of trails have been blazed through the wilderness, with the most advanced leading to the Mount Rose Summit at 10,776 feet. Other intermediate trails lead through Jeffery Pines, the popular and very scenic Thomas Creek, Whites Creek and Hunter Creek Canyon.
