INCLINE VILLAGE — On Saturday, the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) will put the finishing touches on a new section of trail within the Rim to Reno Trail System. This new section of trail was started in 2011 and allows hikers accessing the Tahoe Rim Trail at Relay Peak from the Mt. Rose Summit Trailhead off Highway 431 to hike on about 2.5 miles of new single track trail from the Galena Waterfall. In the past, hikers on this section of trail walked on a dirt access road for about 4 miles.

On Saturday the Tahoe Rim Trail Association will be celebrating this herculean effort during its End of Season Work Day Celebration. Community members, trail enthusiasts and the general public are invited to attend the celebration and be part of the final work party on this section of trail. Festivities will kick off at 8:45 a.m. in the Mount Rose Summit parking lot off Highway 431. From there, attendees will carpool to our worksite where the Tahoe Rim Trail Association will provide an overview the project and accomplishments to date. Trail building volunteers will then dig into the last workday of the season and will build the connection between the new trail and the old!

Volunteers of all skill levels and physical abilities are welcome and encouraged to participate — no prior experience necessary.

For more information or to register contact Lindsey Schultz, Trails Program Manager and AmeriCorps Member, by calling 298-0239 or emailing trails@tahoerimtrail.org.
