Tahoe Rim Trail Sections - Backpacking/Camping
The 165-mile Tahoe Rim Trail is arguably one of the most scenic long distance hikes in the country.
Destination Distance From Downtown
Done as a through-hike, the Tahoe Rim Trail can be a strenuous and difficult trek.
Time To Complete
The amount of days taken to hike the Tahoe Rim Trail depends on your pace. A 12 day trek assumes an average pace of 13.75 miles per day.
Summer and Fall
This through hike is best done in the summer and fall months. Enough snow needs to have melted to make the trail passable in the early summer. A fall hike requires water sources to be plentiful.
This is a strenuous hike for humans. You must be confident in your dog's endurance and stamina to take them on this trip.
A permit is still required for travel through Desolation Wilderness and a campfire permit is required for the entire trip.
