Starting at the Mt. Rose Trailhead, at the summit of Mt. Rose Hwy (S.R. 431), we’ll hike three miles to the wildflower framed Galena Falls. Along the way, hikers will take in incredible views of Lake Tahoe and meander through a beautiful pine forest. Once at the falls, enjoy a snack break, a pack fitting discussion and photo opportunities before heading back to the trailhead. Expert gear advice, packs and a free gift will be provided by Deuter and your favorite outdoor professionals, Tahoe Mountain Sports. Deuter will have packs of all shapes and sizes; from small, lightweight hydration and daypacks up to the largest load-haulers. Participants can test multiple packs throughout the hike!
“We get tons of people asking which backpack is right for them and it has always been hard to answer that question,” said Jaime Souza (TRTA). “We think it’s a natural fit for us to work alongside Tahoe Mountain Sports and Deuter.”
Tahoe Mountain Sports owner Dave Polivy believes that “working with experts and putting packs through the paces on-trail is a great way to learn what kind of backpack works best for you.”
“Tahoe is a hub for backpacking,” explained Christian Mason of Deuter USA. “We’re always excited to get our packs out in the greatest wilderness areas, so we couldn’t be happier bringing them to hikers in Tahoe.”
