Celebrate National Trails Day in on the Tahoe Rim Trail
- Lindsey Shultz
Celebrate the 20th Annual National Trails Day on June 2 on the Tahoe Rim Trail. Volunteer on the trail or take part in a guided hike around the new Van Sickle Bi-State Park off Lake Parkway in Stateline, NV.
From 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. help the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) build trail for the first time this season. Volunteers of all skill levels and physical abilities are welcome and encouraged to participate—no prior experience necessary. Starbucks is donating coffee and all volunteers will receive free lunch provided by REI and TRTA.
The event will conclude at 4:00pm with a volunteer party at Explore Tahoe including free food and drink. This event opens the fourth trail-building season of a multi-year project, which will connect the Tahoe Rim Trail with Van Sickle State Park, re-route the TRT off paved roads, and provide stunning views of Lake Tahoe to more people.
Whether you’re a local or a visitor, this a great way to give back to the Tahoe South community and meet other trail enthusiasts.
Volunteers must wear/bring:
- long-sleeved shirts
- long pants
- work gloves
- bug spray
The Tahoe Rim Trail Association will provide hard hats, trail building tools and crew leaders.
To participate, please register online at www.tahoerimtrail.org or contact Lindsey at 775-298-0239 [email protected].
Lindsey is the Trails Program Manager of the TRT.
