Ascent Trip Report

Much publicity has been made regarding the excellent views along the Tahoe Rim Trail so my expectations were high. Despite high hopes, the hike from Spooner Summit to the top of Snow Valley Peak did not disappoint. We followed the TRT to the jeep trail beyond the high point and then made our way up the fairly gradual road to the summit. Return was via the same route. This was our second Nevada county highpoint in as many days and an experience I will not soon forget.
