INCLINE VILLAGE — The Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA), will host two Backcountry Camps on the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT), Aug. 6-7 and Sept. 3-5. Volunteers have shown their appreciation for this public recreation trail through 25 years of backcountry camps. Both camps will be held at near the Mt. Rose Trailhead of the TRT, at the top of Hwy 431. Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to attend.
The Tahoe Rim Trail circles the mountain ridges above Lake Tahoe, through the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest’s Mount Rose Wilderness. The Rim to Reno project will build new trail segments connecting the existing trails and creating a new system that includes loop trails along with the connector trail to Reno.
The TRTA’s Backcountry Camps are an enjoyable and family friendly way to work on the trail and enjoy the Tahoe outdoor lifestyle. Food will be provided, but in order to offset this cost the camp is $30 for the two-day August camp and $40 for the three-day camp in September. Families are welcome, and children’s camping equipment is available upon request.

Volunteers must bring their own camping equipment; wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, boots and work gloves; and bring sunscreen, bug spray and plenty of water. Check the weather reports and bring additional clothing as necessary. The Tahoe Rim Trail Association will provide hard hats and all trail tools.
