TRT is a gem of a trail

Did a short walk from Stagecoach Lift, to the Van Sickle Trail, down to town. A little under 5 miles and most of it is down-hill. I have done a longer 4-day walk last year. This... read more

Did a short walk from Stagecoach Lift, to the Van Sickle Trail, down to town. A little under 5 miles and most of it is down-hill. I have done a longer 4-day walk last year. This is a wonderful trail, and I will certainly thru-hike it someday soon. Be careful of Mountain bikers, but they are looking for hikers too.... More

We hiked the trail from the Mt. Rose trailhead to the summit. If you get there by 9:30, you will be able to park. The first part of the trail to the waterfall is moderate hiking. Only about 5 miles round trip although the trip down seemed never ending! Very pretty and worth the trip. Continuing on, we hiked about... More

We hiked the sixth segment of the TRT, from Big Meadow to Echo Summit. The trip was strenuous but beautiful. We are seniors, so we do not hike as fast as the "thru hikers" on the Pacific Crest Trail - but we made it from Big Meadow to Showers Lake in one day, and from there to Echo Summit the... More

We had been hiking on a couple of trails since we came back 3 weeks ago and we found each one to be different but always enjoyable. So we chose the Big Meadow trail head this time. It was a pleasant walk in the beginning but due to breathing difficulty and the unforgiving chilling weather, we hiked for about 2... More

The Tahoe Rim Trail isn't just one, but many trails that have been sewn together to enable hikers to completely circumnavigate Lake Tahoe, mostly at an elevation and in areas often affording great views of the lake. It is in both California and Nevada, of course, and to hike the entire loop is a 165 mile adventure. The good thing... More

This is a beautiful, easy 3 mile hike to the Peak 7766 viewpoint spur trail from the Tahoe Rim Trail at the California Hwy 267 trailhead near Brockway Summit. There is a paved pullout on the west side of Hwy 267 about 1/2 mile from the top of the summit where you can park indicated by brown and white "hiker"... More
