The world-renowned Tahoe Rim Trail took root 35 years ago with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) formation in 1981 to create a long-distance trail which would circumnavigate Lake Tahoe from the ridge tops of the surrounding mountain ranges to create a 170 mile trail system.
Show your support for Tahoe’s most renowned trail at the TRTA 35th Annual Celebration & Fundraiser on October 11, 2016 from 5pm to 8pm.
The celebratory event will showcase the organization’s evolution and will raise support and awareness for the preservation and legacy of the Tahoe Rim Trail. In addition, the event will commemorate the 15th anniversary of the construction of the initial 165 mile loop on September 22, 2001. From 1984 to 2001 over 15,000 volunteers dedicated 200,000 hours to make the 165 mile Tahoe Rim Trail. Today, the support of 300 to 500 annual volunteers continues to champion the mission of the TRTA through trail improvements, education and stewardship.The event will take place at Toiyabe Golf Club in Washoe Valley, NV starting at 5:00 p.m. with live music, food, a hosted wine hour, historical exhibit and silent auction. Immediately following will be a commemorative State of the Trail address looking back over the past 35 years of success and envisioning how the TRTA will capitalize on that success for the Tahoe Rim Trail’s future. Tickets can be purchased at for $50.
