Guided Hikes

The TRTA offers educational guided hikes both for the public and for TRTA members. Join us for a snowshoe trek between January and April, or a summer hike between June and October. Hike topics highlight regional wildflowers, animal survival, and local historical figures. For more information, contact us at or call (775) 298-4485.

Registration opens about a month before the outing. All participants, including children, must be registered for TRTA Guided Hikes.

Distance: 8 miles 
Difficulty: Difficult (length and elevation gain) 
Description: This challenging snowshoe climbs for the first 4 miles, gaining over 1700 feet in elevation before topping out at the Martis Peak Lookout. The rewards are spectacular views of Truckee and Donner Pass, the Sierra Buttes and Lake Tahoe to the south. We will enjoy lunch at the top, so don't forget to bring one. Before signing up for this snowshoe be certain that you can hike 8 miles in snowshoes at altitude keeping in mind that there is a significant elevation gain. Please have a level of self-awareness. If you hiked all summer but have been hibernating all winter, this is not the event for you as it may be a safety hazard for you and is not fair to the other participants.

Distance: 3 miles
Difficulty: Easy
Description: We’re extending our gratitude to Reno area female veterans and taking them out to enjoy a leisurely snowshoe trek through an open meadow, lodgepole pine forest and to a vista that’s worth every step. Enjoy Tahoe’s native residents like the cutest little Chickadees curiously flying by or nesting in a birch tree while eating lunch on the very ridge named after these wonderful birds.

*This hike is for female veterans only.
