Tahoe Rim Trail hosts speaker series

Snowshoeing season is almost over but the trail hasn’t melted out enough yet for hiking.

Beat the shoulder-season blues and get excited for summer with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association’s second annual April Speaker Series.

Find out about new backpacking and hiking gear, learn about the Tahoe Basin’s geology and get the inside scoop on hiking the trail from start to finish in these three fascinating presentations.

April 12th: “Latest and Greatest in Gear” by Dave Hess from REI. Dave will bring his coolest new backpacking and hiking gear to do a show and tell of what to get (and give) this year.

April 19th: “Geology of the Lake Tahoe Basin” by Mark Vollmer. Mark is a free-lance photographer and writer and joins us for a beautiful presentation of the geology of the Basin as seen from the Tahoe Rim Trail. Back by popular demand.

April 26th: “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Hiking and Backpacking the Tahoe Rim Trail” by Mark Kimbrough and Tim Hauserman. These two will team up to divulge the secrets of the trail from where to get water to the best wildflowers and the easiest way to shuttle for day hikes.

All presentations will take place 6-7 p.m. at the DWR Nonprofit Center, 948 Incline Way, Incline Village. Please RSVP to programs@tahoerimtrail.org or (775) 298-0012.
