Mount Verstovia
Drove past the trailhead off Sawmill Creek Rd on the first pass. There wasn't much space to park, but I managed to squeeze into an open spot. Followed the trail up to the "Picnic Rock" (which some guides call "Mt Verstovia", contrary to most maps)... The trail was steep, with plenty of roots and rocks, but in good condition,...

Slide Mountain - "backcountry skiing" in the Mount Rose Ski Resort
Even though almost all of the ski resorts in the Sierra Nevada are closed for the season by now, a lot of places still have more than enough snow left for skiing. I usually avoid ski resort not only because the day passes in the ski resorts around Lake Tahoe are outrageously expensive (typically > 100$), but also because I...

Round Top from NE - Elephants Back
I had plenty of real life views and took many many pictures of Round Top in the last few weeks. Due to the massive amounts of snow this area got during this winter, I thought of an approach to the top from northeast. I did not find any reports in the www about such a line, but judging from my inspection last week from the top and...

Round Top via Crescent Moon Couloir
If I had to name "my favorite peak" in my new home, it would have to be Round Top. Not only because I have been on top of it 3 times already, but also because it offers quite a few interesting routes, in summer and winter and with it's >10000ft altitude a very nice view as well. One of the little more adventurous routes to the...

Twin Sisters (North) - Do not repeat this hike or you might end up in jail!
I actually wanted to do another ski tour on this day, but the weather forecast predicted snow fall for the Sierra Nevada over night and cloudy skies until noon. Therefore, I decided to do something in a coastal mountain range instead, where the weather was supposed to be very sunny. I didn't have much time to prepare a hike and...

Sacramento Bar Park / American River Parkway - Hike, Bike, Swim, Float and its Fauna & Flora
My current "extended back-yard" is the American River in Fair Oaks. The so-called Sacramento Bar Park is one of many parks which all together form the American River Parkway, Sacramento Region’s great recreational asset. The American River Parkway also includes a wonderful bike path along the Lower American River, from...

Kalalau Trail
Nach imposanten Ausblicken in den Waimea Canyon bei unserer Aufwärmtour, sowie von den Lookouts im Koke State Park auch schon zur Napali Coast hinunter stand am darauf folgenden Tag das Highlight unseres Kauai Aufenthalts auf dem Programm: Der Kalalau Trail. Auch wenn es einige Leute gibt, die den Trail ohne Permit in Angriff...

Auf dem Canyon Trail zu den Waipo'o Falls
Schon wieder eine ganze Weile her seit meinem letzten Bericht und aus meinem Vorsatz alte Berichte aufzuarbeiten ist natürlich auch nichts geworden ... naja, zumindest Kurzberichte damit meine Gipfelliste dann auch mal vollständig ist, wird es auf jeden Fall noch geben ... Aber zunächst zwei relativ aktuelle Berichte vom...

Thompson Peak - an unplanned but wonderful ski tour
On this day I had a clear goal: to get a good workout with as much altimeter gain as possible. In the Tahoe area Freel Peak with is 10883 ft is one of the highest peaks and if you start somewhere around lake level (for example at the end of High Meadows Tail in Meyers (same as here), you get a good 4000 ft climb. So much for the...

Maggies Peaks - Closed for the Season? No way!
Maggie's South Peak is a very popular hiking destinations in the Tahoe area. It is an easy marked path from Inspiration Point (a view point at Emerald Bay) to the top. During the summer months hundreds if not thousands of people visit this peak every year which offers a nice view to Lake Tahoe. During the winter, the peak is in...
