This year will mark the first phase of the multi-year project, which will ultimately connect the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) with the Van Sickle State Park, re-route the TRT off paved roads and provide stunning views of Lake Tahoe to more people. Volunteers will receive free lunch sponsored by REI and the day will conclude with a celebration at Explore Tahoe, the urban trailhead. Tasks on this day will be available for volunteers of all skill levels and physical abilities. Families are welcome.
Volunteers must wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, boots, and work gloves as well as bring sunscreen, bug spray, water and a backpack. The Tahoe Rim Trail Association will provide hard hats, trail building tools and crew leaders. Parking is limited – contact TRTA for more information.
