Beginning on Donner Pass, our route takes us up through the dense forests and marshes of Castle Valley to the exposed ridge line of the Peak. Passing through treeline, we make our way to the exposed summit. This is a demanding hike, but one that rewards us with the best views in the North Tahoe area.
This is a plug and play adventure in the beautiful back country of Lake Tahoe without the hassle of route finding or even packing lunch. Alpenglow’s professional guides have an intimate knowledge of the area and love nothing more than sharing their love of wild places with our guests. Lunch is provided by Alpenglow Expeditions, and all guides are trained and certified in wilderness medicine.
