Tahoe Rim Trail volunteers seek help to build last six miles of loop

Tahoe Rim Trail volunteers are calling on all mountain bikers, hikers and equestrians who use and enjoy the trail to help build the last six miles of the 150-mile loop trail between Mount Rose and Martis Peak. There is only a short time left in the construction season.

Individuals, families, clubs, businesses and organizations are all welcome.

Crews will be going out six days a week, Tuesdays through Sundays. To sign up, volunteers should call (775) 588-0686, go to www.tahoerimtrail.org or tahoerimtrail@aol.com about a week in advance of the day they would like to go out on the trail.

Sara Hurley, the volunteer coordinator, will let them know where and when to meet the crew leader for the day and what to bring.

The Tahoe Rim Trail is a 150-mile loop trail that follows the ridge tops of the Lake Tahoe basin. Construction began in 1984 and is scheduled to be completed by 2001. There are currently six miles of new trail left to be built. It is a multi-use trail built for the enjoyment of hikers, equestrians and in most areas, mountain bikers.
