Jobs Peak

4/10/08
Jobs Peak is probably the hardest of the Tahoe Ten's to get on top of. It's not the difficulty, but the distance that makes it tough. The shortest winter route requires a 6,000' vertical climb to get to the peak, while in the summer you can get to within 2,200' of the summit if you have a decent off road vehicle. Clearance is more important than 4wd. In winter, you can also take the easy route if you have a snowmobile to get you in. Our trailhead was located along Foothill Road next to the new Jobs Peak Ranch subdivision (ok, we actually started from a secret location within the subdivision). The hike up is fairly straightforward. You want to get into the main gully as early as possible or you'll end up on a side hill which is uncomfortable, assuming this is a winter or spring approach. Once you're in the gully it's next to impossible to mess it up.
