Deadman’s Overlook Trail

Deadman’s Overlook Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If dead men could enjoy great views, they’d love the overlook at the apex of this loop. Fortunately this hike isn’t hard enough to suck the life out of anyone, and from the gazebo at the high point, survivors will be treated to vistas of Washoe Lake, the Washoe Valley, and Slide Mountain.

The gazebo at the top of the Deadman’s Overlook Trail boasts panoramic views across Washoe Lake and Little Washoe Lake onto the steep, scarred east face of Slide Mountain. Washed white with snow in winter and spring, streaked gray and dark green during the long dry summer, this distinctive peak dominates nearly every vista along the stretch of the mountain front between Reno and Carson City."
