Sawtooth cleanup slated

On June 8, members of the Truckee-Tahoe community are invited to participate in the first annual Sawtooth Trail Cleanup Day.

This grassroots event is brought to you through a joint venture between Tahoe Mountain Guides, CyclePaths and the Truckee Trails Foundation, in partnership with the US Forest Service.

“The Sawtooth trail is in our backyard, we all use it and should all take part in maintaining it.” Ken Long, of Tahoe Mountain Guides, said. “Tahoe Mountain Guides has stepped up as the steward of the trail and is adopting Sawtooth. We hope to see lots of locals working with us on June 8th to buff out the trail for everyone to enjoy,” he added.

Kevin Starr, trail crew leader for the Truckee Trails Foundation, agrees.

“The Trails Foundation is excited to do much needed maintenance on a great trail that is so popular with both locals and visitors. We are thrilled that Tahoe Mountain Guides and CyclePaths are helping us make this happen.”

Volunteers must pre-register to participate by completing an online volunteer form available from

Participation will be capped at 50 volunteers. All forms should be emailed to by noon June 7. Volunteers are asked to arrive at the trailhead at 8:30 a.m. with a bag lunch and wearing long pants, long sleeves and closed-toe shoes.

The day will be spent working as a team to perform basic trail maintenance and will conclude with a family-friendly celebration at the trail head.

The Truckee Trails Foundation has teamed up with Diego’s Beyond Bueno and Sierra Nevada Brewing company to sponsor this thank-youparty for the volunteers and their families.

Tahoe Mountain Guides, Cycle Paths and the Truckee Trails Foundation hope that the local community joins them in caring for Truckee’s Sawtooth trail.
