Rim Trail Association hosts challenge hike

Hikers in good shape are invited to a 23-mile challenge hike with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association today.

Join experienced volunteer guides for a day of hiking on the longest segment of the Tahoe Rim Trail. The route from Kingsbury Grade south (7,520 feet) to Big Meadow (7,300 feet) maintains a grade of 10 percent or less, except for some steep rocky sections around Monument Pass. Much of this route is exposed and above 9,000 feet in elevation.

Meet at the Big Meadow trailhead at 6 a.m. Expect to spend 10 hours on this strenuous walk.

Bring a lunch, snacks, raincoat, sun protection and at least 2 liters of water. Water is available to filter at Star Lake. If you have a filter, bring it.

This hike is for experienced hikers in good physical condition. This is a long hike taken at a steady pace.

Pre-registration is required for all hikes. For more information or to sign up, call the TRTA office at (775) 298-0012 or e-mail jaimes@tahoerimtrail.org
