Ever wonder why all the trails you use are in such nice condition? Well here in Lake Tahoe the big daddy trail of them all is kept in tip top shape by users just like you.

Throughout the summer the Tahoe Rim Trail Association runs volunteer trail maintenance days in order to build and maintain the Tahoe Rim Trail. So if you’d like to help out and do your part check out the TRTA’s website for volunteer opportunities. In addition to trail work info the TRTA puts on all sorts of great events year round.
What a great way to get out and enjoy the wild lands and give back as well! There are 165 miles traveling the ridges around Lake Tahoe to be kept in order, why not volunteer on an unfamiliar section?
Don’t feel like digging in the dirt all day but still want to help out? Check out what the US Forest Service has available as well. They have many other options besides trail work.
