One of the newer trails built by volunteers in association with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, this challenging route offers an extended journey through a remote section of the Mt. Rose Wilderness. After following a section of the highly popular Mt. Rose and Tahoe Rim Trails, the route leaves the masses behind and dives into and climbs out of the Bronco Creek drainage before embarking on a long traverse across the west flank of the Carson Range, enjoying some fantastic views along the way. After gaining the crest, the trail drops into lush Thomas Creek Canyon and then follows the tumbling stream down to the upper and lower ending trailheads.
