Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park Ranger Bill Champion is constructing a new trail Sept. 18 and 19, which will connect Hobart Reservoir to the Tahoe Rim Trail at the Marlette Peak Campground. This link will be a great addition to an already outstanding network of trails that begin at Spooner Lake.

Bypassing Sunflower Hill, the new trail will provide a much easier ascent back to Hobart Flat, and will open up the lightly used and scenic backcountry in the park.

Volunteers must RSVP to Jeff Potter at 6dogs@pyramid.net so the proper amount of equipment can be planned.

About 3,500 feet of trail have already been completed. Work will continue just below the campground, so access is easy. The primary users of this beautiful, remote trail will be mountain bikers so please take this opportunity to be a part of this great new addition to our backcountry trail system.

Feel free to bring along your mountain bike, running shoes or hiking boots for a little post-trail work recreation.

What you should bring:

• work pants, no shorts

• boots or other sturdy footwear

• food, water

• sunblock, insect repellent

• gloves, hat

• all necessary camp gear if staying overnight

Four-wheel drive vehicles will be allowed. Carpooling is encouraged.

The campground has water and restrooms, plenty of camping room with grills, tables and food lockers .

Experienced trail crew leaders to lead the work.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Jeff Potter at 6dogs@pyramid.net.
