The Tahoe Rim Trail Association is accepting applications for its 15th Annual Thru Hike.

Two expeditions for the 165-mile, 15-day guided trek will take place Aug. 13-27 and Sept. 10-24. The cost is $1,695 for either expedition.

“This extraordinary trek offers participants of all ages a structured, guided and fully supported means of completing the entire 165-mile multiuse trail, the opportunity to meet new friends, and the chance to fully immerse in the breathtaking splendor of the Northern Sierra Nevada and Carson Mountain Ranges,” said Lindsey Schultz, director of trail use for the TRTA, based in Stateline, Nev.



“Two groups of up to 12 lucky participants will experience the excitement, challenge, and gratification of this 15-day, fully supported backpacking trip through a landscape as diverse as it is beautiful with its towering conifers, glacial moraines and crystalline alpine lakes.”

Schultz said participants will be led by four trained and experienced volunteer guides and will be met every one to three days with planned resupplies from the trail’s volunteer Trail Angels.




“Both expeditions cost $1,695 and have space for up to 12 participants,” she said. “Let 2016 be the year you achieve the unforgettable!”

To apply, visit http://www.tahoerimtrail.org or contact Lindsey at lindseys@tahoerimtrail.org.

Please note: All participants will be subject to a medical history review and hiking experience survey to ensure that this demanding program is right for them, according to a press release.
