Hike on a wintry Spring day to the Peak 7766 viewpoint spur trail from the Tahoe Rim Trail at the California Hwy 267 trailhead near Brockway Summit. I had intended to go snowshoeing near Mt. Rose, but the tantalizing patch of blue sky visible from Reno turned into fog with a cold brisk wind at the Mt. Rose highway summit–so I drove on to the TRT. This would be a good place to take visitors for a short hike with a Lake Tahoe view.
