Day Hike the Tahoe Rim Trail in 2010!

NORTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. and#8212; John Muir, great lover of the Sierras once said, and#8220;In every walk with nature one receives far more than one seeks.and#8221; How right he was! The Tahoe Rim Trail Association still has spots left in their 165-Mile Segment Hiking Program for the summer of 2010. They invite you to seek out the rewards of a summer of hiking as well as reap the benefits of hiking with a group of like-minded people. Support the TRTA, get on the trail, and finish the loop!

In the 165-Mile Segment Hiking Program participants will hike one section of the Tahoe Rim Trail every week for a total of nine day hikes or seven day hikes and a backpacking trip. All hikes are guided by our fully trained volunteer guides and the hiking group will be composed of the same people every week, so youand#8217;ll get a chance forge new friendships and meet hiking partners. Upon finishing the program you will be inducted into the 165-Mile club, receive a hat, T-shirt and pin, and a lifelong membership number!

The TRTA shuttle will transport you from the ending trailhead to the start of your hike so at the end of the day thereand#8217;s no need to worry about that extra drive to get back to your car. The $500 membership level for the 165-Mile Segment Hiking Program helps the TRTA in providing educational programs and in letting us maintain and enhance the trail as our mission requires.

Sign up now for your Segment Hike experience in 2010. The hikes start either June 18 or June 19 and finishes with the backpack Aug. 13-15 or the last dayhike on Aug. 21.
