Description

The Mt. Rose Highway (SR-431) rises in dramatic fashion from the sage-covered foothills of the Truckee Meadows, topping the Carson Range of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at 8,911 feet. The Mt. Rose Highway is the highest all-season pass in the Sierras. Near its summit the highway cuts through beautiful, high alpine Tahoe Meadows, a favorite recreation area for local residents. The highway then descends through pine forests, finally joining Highway 28 at Incline Village on the north shore of Lake Tahoe.

Incredible views and vistas abound from almost every section of the highway. The route offers access to the 28,000-acre Mt. Rose Wilderness Area, the popular Tahoe Rim Trail, Mt. Rose Ski Resort, Diamond Peak Cross-Country Ski Resort, Galena Creek County Park, USFS summit campground and numerous trailheads.
