Join the Hike: Tahoe Rim Trail Association plans 4 trips

Hiking season here, and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association is gearing up for people to join one of its many guided hiking programs for adults and youth.

The Taste of the TRT program takes adults on four- or five-day hikes on portions of the Tahoe Rim Trail. Participants will be supported every step of the way, from pre-trip planning and meals to expert guides and water caches on dry sections of the trail. Join all four journeys and complete the entire course. Consult the association’s guided hikes page — tahoerimtrail.org/guided-hikes – for more information.

Youth Backcountry Camps offer 12-17 year olds a four-day hiking experience on the trail. The camps are fully supported by the association’s trained staff. All food, camping gear, permits, and transportation to and from trailheads are provided. Participants only need to bring shoes and clothes and leave the screens at home. The camps are offered on a sliding scale of $225, $445 or $665 to ensure that all young people who wish to attend can do so. Full scholarships are also available.
