Lake Tahoe Rim Trail is a 165 Mile Backcountry Adventure!

Summary

Features: Lake Tahoe Rim Trail stretches 165 miles around the lake and is open to hikers, bikers and horseback riders. They feature comprehensive trail maps online with descriptions of each trail head including the distance, location, users, elevation, highlights and estimated calories burned. Their detailed maps and information available online are a great resource for visitors new to the region.

Why We Go: The Tahoe Rim Trail Association helps visitors navigate their way through the 165-mile long trail by providing comprehensive maps and information. There is an abundance of resources and helpful tools online for hikers and bikers. Whether you are a local resident or first time tourist, the Lake Tahoe Rim Trail features miles of gorgeous backcountry trails fit for any fitness level.

  • Day Hikes: The Tahoe Rim Trail Association offers trail suggestions catered to people’s abilities. The trail maps are labeled easy, medium and hard and are broken down by location, North Shore, West Shore, South Shore and East Shore. Check the Tahoe Rim Trail Map on their website under Recommended Hikes for a full list of trails.  
  • Bike Riding: Mountain bikes are only allowed on certain trails. Check the Tahoe Rim Trail Mapfor a list of trails that are bike rider friendly. 
  • 165 Mile Club: More than 1200 people have already become a part of 165 mile club at the Tahoe Rim Trail Association. Participants can either hike or bike their way through the trail and can complete it at their own pace - it does not have to be all done at once. Those who complete the entire trail will have their name added to 165 Mile Club log book, website and in the trail blazer as well as receive a 165 mile patch and commemorative certificate of completion.

Inside Knowledge: The Tahoe Rim Trail overlaps with the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, a 2,650-mile long trail that stretches from Mexico to Canada. These two trails overlap on the west side of Lake Tahoe on the Echo Lake to Barker Pass trail. Hikers and equestrians are allowed on this trail, mountain bike riders are not.

Do's and Don'ts: 

  • Do Go Prepared: Some of the trails on Lake Tahoe Rim Trail are a bit long and day hikes can easily turn into night hikes if one does not pace themselves. The Tahoe Rim Trail Association recommends people to always be prepared and carry these items with them: water, food, snacks, first aid kit, map, flashlight and compass.
  • Do Check for Special Events: The Tahoe Rim Trail Association does feature free special events year round. During the Winter, there are guided snowshoe hikes and full moon snowshoe hikes. Times and trails vary by date, participants can register online. The Tahoe Rim Trail Association also features several training programs including wilderness first aid, trail construction and crew leader training, first aid and CPR and the annual outdoor leadership and guide training. 
  • Don’t Litter: Visitors can help keep the trails beautiful and well-maintained for future generations by cleaning up after themselves. Leave No Trace program is part of a non-profit organization that aims to educate people on wildlife preservation. 
  • Don’t Forget to Show Your Support: There are several ways residents and tourists can help maintain Lake Tahoe Rim Trail. Over the next decade, the Trail Rim Trail Association plans to add 65 miles to the existing trail. People can choose to become a member, make a one-time donation, tribute or endowment gift donation.
