Adopting a Mile

For more than 35 years volunteers have been planning and building the Tahoe Rim Trail. Each year continual improvements are being made to the trail to provide a better trail experience. Your support as an Adopt-a-Mile donor will help us keep this trail like no other open and accessible to over 400,000 annual users both now and for years to come!

WHY ADOPT A MILE?

Individuals, families and organizations can help to ensure the continuing legacy of the Tahoe Rim Trail by adopting your own mile! As an Adopt-A-Mile donor, you have the opportunity to be a steward of the trail by giving back to something you love – the trail and the Lake Tahoe Basin.

HOW MUCH DOES A MILE COST?

Select miles along the Tahoe Rim Trail system are available for a $5,000 tax deductible donation.

HOW DO I ADOPT A MILE?

Please contact Morgan Fessler, Executive Director at 775-298-4489 or morganf@tahoerimtrail.org to discuss available miles and for questions and inquiries.

Adopting a Vista

How would you like to have a place to call your own, where you can sit quietly and enjoy the views above the most spectacular lake in the world? Or perhaps you would like to have a place to remember or honor someone special.

Through our Adopt-A-Vista Program, we have selected special places along the trail that provide breathtaking views and stunning scenery. Vistas are a great way to honor or memoralize a friend or loved one. By adopting a vista you are able to appreciate your own special place along the Tahoe Rim Trail while helping support the Tahoe Rim Trail Association.

You may select the vista of your choice through our photo portfolio or choose your own special vista near the Tahoe Rim Trail. Please review the map to the right for an overview of available vista locations. The hiker icon denotes available vistas and the TRTA sheild are vistas that have already been adopted. Contact the TRTA Office at 775-298-4485 for pictures of the available vistas.

Our goals in the next few years include developing more access trails and day hikes, moving all road portions off the trail to single-track trail, and establishing a permanent maintenance program. Your tax deductible donation to Adopt-A-Vista will help us achieve these goals and others.

HOW MUCH DOES A VISTA COST?

Vistas are available for a $5,000 tax-deductible donation.

DID YOU KNOW WE HAVE MILES AVAILABLE TOO? 

If you don’t find a vista that suits your needs, we have a limited number of miles remaining at our Rim to Reno Project on the north shore of Lake Tahoe and the Daggett Project on the South shore of Tahoe. Click here for more information.
