Intersection of Henness Pass Rd and Dog Valley Roads
Toiyabe National Forest calls this location "Summit 1". The Truckee Trail passes through this intersection and continues westward on Dog Valley Road (the one on the right) for a short distance until the valley floor is reached. The trail then leaves the road and climbs gently up to Summit Two. Summit Two (2.4 miles up the left road) is where Verdi Peak Road connects to Henness Pass Road. It is also on the border between Tahoe and Toiyabe national forests.
The coordinates of this point are 39.549N, 120.03985W.
