Tahoe Rim Trail Association
The Tahoe Rim Trail Association is a volunteer, non-profit 501(C)(3) organization established in 1981 to plan, construct, and maintain the Tahoe Rim Trail. This 165-mile, twenty-four inch, single-track trail is open to hiking, equestrians, and mountain biking (in most areas). The trail encompasses the ridge tops of the Lake Tahoe Basin, crossing six counties, and two states. The Tahoe Rim Trail overlaps with approximately fifty miles of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail.
|"The Tahoe Rim Trail exists because of the dreams and dedicated efforts of thousands of volunteers who built and continue to maintain the trail."|
Currently the association is run by a board of directors consisting of approximately 14 members from a wide variety of backgrounds.
For more than 20 years the TRTA focused on closing the loop around the ridge tops of Lake Tahoe. Since that goal has been reached, the focus of the TRTA has turned to improving and maintaining the trail and encouraging responsible recreational use of the trail.
The leadership of the Association consists of a President, Secretary and Treasurer. There are seven vice-presidents that serve as the chairmen of the seven main committees that support this group. All other members of the board serve as members of the committees. Non-board members may serve as committee members.
