Adopt-a-Vista Program

Vista Near South Camp 500x300

How would you like to have a place to call your own, where you can sit quietly and enjoy the views above the most spectacular lake in the world? Or perhaps you would like to have a place to remember or honor someone special.

Through our Adopt-A-Vista Program, we have selected special places along the trail that provide breathtaking views and stunning scenery. Vistas are a great way to honor or memoralize a friend or loved one. By adopting a vista you are able to appreciate your own special place along the Tahoe Rim Trail while helping support the Tahoe Rim Trail Association.


HOW TO ADOPT A VISTA

You may select the vista of your choice through our photo portfolio or choose your own special vista near the Tahoe Rim Trail. Please review the map to the right for an overview of available vista locations. The hiker icon denotes available vistas and the TRTA sheild are vistas that have already been adopted. Contact the TRTA Office at 775-298-4485 for pictures of the available vistas.

Our goals in the next few years include developing more access trails and day hikes, moving all road portions off the trail to single-track trail, and establishing a permanent maintenance program. Your tax deductible donation to Adopt-A-Vista will help us achieve these goals and others.

HOW MUCH DOES A VISTA COST?

Vistas are available for a $5,000 tax-deductible donation.

DID YOU KNOW WE HAVE MILES AVAILABLE TOO? 

If you don't find a vista that suites your needs, we have a limited number of miles remaining at our Rim to Reno Project on the north shore of Lake Tahoe and the Daggett Project on the South shore of Tahoe. Click here for more information.
