Ascent Trip Report

I approached Trinity Pk from I-80, exit 106 in Lovelock. Take Main St west about .5 mile to N. Meridian and turn right. Go north on N. Meridian about 1.5 miles to Pitt Rd (NV 399). This is a good paved road heading west. At about 11.8 miles pass Seven Troughs/Sulfur road on the right and continue to the sign that indicates "End of NV 399" at about 17.7 miles from N. Meridian. Just past the sign turn left on an old road track going south towards Trinity. follow this road about .7 mile to where it ends on a saddle.

The hike is straight forward heading south. Traverse around the hill on the left and pick up an old road heading south. I only stayed on this old road for about .5 mile and then I headed up the north ridge towards the summit. There was nothing technical on the route. I chased several burros away and managed to avoid most of the snow patches. Great views from the summit.
