Fall hikes planned on Rim Trail

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association is hosting a series of fall hikes. Pre-registration is required for all hikes. For more information or to sign up for these hikes, call the TRTA office at (775) 298-0012 or e-mail info@tahoerimtrail.org.

Oct. 3: Spooner Summit South

From Spooner Summit the Tahoe Rim Trail switchbacks upward through conifers and across small meadows with intermittent views of Lake Tahoe.

At the three-mile point you will climb up to a vista with views of Lake Tahoe and the Carson Valley.

This will be a stopping point for snacks and photos and then we will continue back to the trailhead. Hopefully there will be some beautiful fall colors to enjoy during this hike.

This hike is a total of six miles, well-behaved dogs and children over 12 are welcome. Participants must be able to hike 2 mph. Please bring snacks and/or lunch with plenty of water.

There might be a chill in the air, so be prepared with layers.

Oct. 3: Tahoe Meadows to Diamond Peak

Hike from Tahoe Meadows to the top of Diamond Peak, along the Tahoe Rim Trail, with beautiful views of Lake Tahoe along the way.

This hike is moderate and from 6-7 miles each way, with a total of 14 miles roundtrip. This is a beautiful section of trail and not to be missed.

Bring plenty of water, your camera and lunch. Well-behaved dogs are allowed if you bring them plenty of water.

Oct. 10: Yoga in the Aspens

Join Emily Williams, yoga instructor and TRTA Director of Trail Use, for a fall hike through Page Meadows with a one-hour yoga lesson in the heart of the meadow.

Participants must currently be practicing yoga, although all levels are encouraged to attend. Please expect to hike a total of four miles and bring water, layered clothing, and your own yoga mat.

Space is limited, register in advance only.

Oct. 24: Hoots, Howls & Growls: Family Fun Hike
