The Tahoe Rim Trail is a 165-mile long-distance hiking trail that forms a loop around Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada and Carson ranges of California and Nevada. The trail ranges in elevation from 6,240 feet at the outlet of Lake Tahoe to 10,338 feet at Relay Peak in Nevada. The trail is open year round and offers great snowshoeing opportunities in the winter. Hikers, bikers, and equestrians are allowed on portions of the trail. Please check first before venturing out. Adventurers can access the trail from either side of the top of Spooner Summit, a short 15 minute drive from Carson City.
