Mt. Houghton Trail Day Tahoe Culture

Wednesday, October 14, 2014 the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) will celebrate the completion of new trail to the Mt. Houghton Summit from the Tahoe Rim Trail at Relay Ridge. This new trail is the final phase of the multi-year Rim to Reno Project that connected the Tahoe Rim Trail to communities in Northern Nevada by building trail from Mt. Rose to the Thomas Creek Trailhead.

The new .7 miles of trail to Mt. Houghton Summit increases recreational access in the Mt. Rose area and protects Tahoe Draba, an endemic species found only in a few sites in the Tahoe Basin. Trail building was a summer long endeavor with over 100 volunteers and more than 2,000 hours contributed.

TRTA will celebrate the efforts that went into building this new trail at our Mt. Houghton Opening Ceremony. Community members, volunteers, partners, and media are invited to attend, Wednesday, October 14th from 11:00am to 2:00pm.

The TRTA will meet attendees at the Mt. Rose Summit Trailhead parking lot located on Hwy 431, eight miles east of Incline Village, NV.  Attendees will meet at the Mt. Rose Summit parking lot then shuttle to Relay Ridge where the TRTA will have a short presentation, install the final trail sign, and lead a hike on the new section of trail (approximate total hiking distance is 3 miles). Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Registration is required for this event. To register visit the Tahoe Rim Trail Association website:
