Mt. Ralston Peak Trail reviews
Permit box has been removed because of covid-19 so we just went ahead. Good training hike for Half Dome in Yosemite and Mt. Whitney due to the elevation and ascent. There's another slightly longer..... more »
Beautiful view at the top of Tahoe and several other lakes surrounding the area. This trail is hard. more »
The hike up is very hard and strenuous, but the peak has some of the best views I’ve ever seen in my short life
This is always a favorite of the peaks we hike in Tahoe. We snowshoes to the top using gps to navigate on the trail, but stayed to the right and went straight up to the peak. This seemed to cut off about .25 mile. The temps were mild and we only had gust wind at the very top. Was a beautiful day. With the loop at the top, we came down the regular trail. Total distance was 6.9 miles. Even in the winter, still a favorite!!
