Description: This National Winter Trails Day, The Tahoe Rim Trail Association and the Sugar Pine Foundation will be co-hosting an afternoon snowshoe trek to Big Meadow in the southern part of Lake Tahoe. This will be a leisurely snowshoe trek from the Big Meadow Trailhead parking lot to a beautiful BIG meadow. Although the first 1/4 miles is steep, the trail mellows out considerably for the remaining approach allowing the novice hiker an enjoyable experience. We will eat lunch at our destination, so please remember to bring lunch and snacks. Our destination provides great photo opportunities of a gently rolling landscape, willow lined river and a vast meadow with a mountainous backdrop surrounded by fragrant conifer stands. Our Sugar Pine experts will discuss the magestic, native Sugar Pines and their current state of depletion.

Distance: 8 miles
Difficulty: Difficult (length and elevation gain)
Description: This challenging snowshoe climbs for the first 4 miles, gaining over 1700 feet in elevation before topping out at the Martis Peak Lookout. The rewards are spectacular views of Truckee and Donner Pass, the Sierra Buttes and Lake Tahoe to the south. We will enjoy lunch at the top, so don't forget to bring one. Before signing up for this snowshoe be certain that you can hike 8 miles in snowshoes at altitude keeping in mind that there is a significant elevation gain. Please have a level of self-awareness. If you hiked all summer but have been hibernating all winter, this is not the event for you as it may be a safety hazard for you and is not fair to the other participants.
