Red Lake Peak Trail

Red Lake Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Lofty Red Lake Peak is the ideal perch for adoring wondrous Hope Valley as it sprawls from Thompson Peak to the north to just beyond Carson Pass to the south. Depending on the snowshoe season, Hope Valley can range from a huge meadow glistening in snow to spacious green fields sliced by the West Fork of the Carson River. Also from Red Lake Peak, Lake Tahoe is dramatic, bordered by snow-capped peaks in winter. The route climbs wide, open slopes most of the way, furnishing inspirational views throughout."
