Event Details

Get to know the depth and breadth of the Mt Rose Wilderness while missing out on the rat race up to Mt Rose Summit.

We will start at Brockway Summit. I know, that is in California, but fortunately we quickly get out of there and camp at Gray Lake.

From Gray Lake we will get onto Relay Ridge and hike over Mt Houghton and then down to Bronco Creek.

Day three we will hike to Davis Meadow.

Day four covers our hike out to the Hunter Creek trailhead.

We will shuttle between Brockway Summit and Hunter Creek. This is a moderately strenuous trip, and some backpacking experience is required.

Please contact Wes (side panel) for details and to sign up. Trip location is about a 1-hour drive from Reno.
