From June though October the TRTA is out on the trail weekly to build and maintain the Tahoe Rim Trail. Volunteering on one of these projects is a great way to spend the day outside, get some exercise, meet great people and give back to the trail.
Check out our workday schedule for information on when and where we will be out on the trail.
TRTA Volunteer Guides are extraordinary people who love to spend time in the outdoors. TRTA guides are dedicated to the mission of the TRTA, and promote wilderness ethics and stewardship on each and every hike.
For a listing of our guided hikes and events check out our Calendar of Events.
From masons to cooks the TRTA has an opportunity for everyone. Join us at outreach events and share your knowledge of the trail with others or help out staff in the office with projects such as answering phones or helping with mailings.

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association is grateful for over 30 years of support from a diverse group of outdoor enthusiasts who continue to support the organization with thousands of volunteer hours annually. It’s a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family.
Since the Tahoe Rim Trail Association began building the Tahoe Rim Trail in 1984, our volunteer program has grown at an incredible pace. The Tahoe Rim Trail was built by over 10,000 volunteers donating over 200,000 hours of time. We have an opportunity for everyone from cooks at our Backcountry Camps to office volunteers who help answer phones and answer questions at our front desk.
